.SYNOPSIS...Just enough moisture will linger through next week
for a very slight chance of showers or thunderstorms each day.
Otherwise, warmer temperatures are in store starting today and
continuing into next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...Weak troughing will affect the region through early
next week. Hghts in this pattern are around normal and temperatures
will begin to rise each day as a result. Enough mid-level moisture
exists in this trough for spotty high-based convection for the next
several days. A few light showers or thunderstorms cannot be ruled
out through Tuesday or Wednesday. The remainder of next week will
feature a high amplitude ridge, bringing the warmest temperatures so
far this year.

&&

.AVIATION...For the 00Z Package...Expect VFR conditions for the
next 24 hours. Few -SHRA north of I-40 should diminish by 02z. Only
isolated -TSRA are expected aft 18Z Sunday over the higher terrain
around and north of a KFLG-KRQE line.

&&

.FIRE WEATHER...There is a slight chance of light showers and
thunderstorms Sunday and again Monday, generally over the higher
terrain north of Interstate 40. Erratic and gusty winds possible
near storms.

Tuesday through Thursday...Only isolated showers and thunderstorms
are expected over the higher terrain, with relatively light winds.
Expect minimum RH below 15 percent most areas.
