...STRONG WINDS EARLY IN THE WORK WEEK...

.Strong west and southwest winds will develop on Monday as a
broad upper level trough begins crossing the northern and central
Rockies steering the jet stream over New Mexico. Peak gusts
should reach around 45 to 50 mph from the central mountains
westward Monday afternoon. Strong winds will probably linger over
mountain peaks Monday night before spreading to lower elevations
and shifting out of the northwest with a Pacific cold front on
Tuesday. The storm system and jet stream will exit east of New
