An upper level low pressure system will pass eastward along the CO/NM

the wildfire late tonight through Sunday, then some snow showers will
linger into Sunday evening as moisture wraps around the exiting
upper low. Southwest winds will strengthen today and tonight, before
shifting out of the west with a Pacific cold front Sunday morning,
and out of the northwest by Sunday afternoon. Gusts to 30 mph are
expected tonight and Sunday. After high temperatures around 15
degrees above normal today, readings will fall around 10 degrees
below normal on Sunday, before rebounding as dry weather and lighter
winds return early in the coming work week.
