PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 339 AM CST THU FEB 4 2016/

DISCUSSION...
An area of surface high pressure settling in over the region
tonight with light/variable winds and clear skies in place. By
sunrise, temperatures will drop into the teens for portions of
southeast NM and the higher terrain while other locations will
see lows in the low to mid 20s. Southerly winds return by this
afternoon, as surface high pressure shifts east, and high
temperatures will be around 5-10 degrees warmer than yesterday.
This warming trend will continue through the weekend with lows
near or below freezing most areas. A quick and weak front will
move through Friday night but a brief wind shift to the north is
all that can be expected. Another front is expected Sunday
night/Monday morning, briefly knocking temps down a few degrees
for Monday. Otherwise, dry conditions look to continue in the
extended with well above normal temperatures possible by middle
of next week.
