.DISCUSSION...
Dry air aloft will keep thunderstorms chances at a minimum this
afternoon. Changes arrive Saturday as the monsoon moisture plume
over western NM and eastern AZ wraps around a strengthening Four
Corners high over southern NV. This moisture heads south from
CO Saturday and combines with a weak upper low to produce scattered to
numerous afternoon storms over north-central NM. Sunday will remain
active with another round of scattered to numerous storms expected.
Thunderstorm motion will be from southeast to northwest today, switching
to east to west Saturday and from north to south Sunday.
