.DISCUSSION...
A COLD TROUGH WILL CONTINUE TO PULL AWAY FROM THE REGION OVER

ACROSS THE DESERT SOUTHWEST.  SURFACE WINDS WILL SLOWLY DIMINISH AND
BECOME MORE TERRAIN-DRIVEN THROUGH WEDNESDAY.  THE LOW SUN ANGLE,
LOWER WINDS, AND APPROACHING HIGHER PRESSURE WILL LEAD TO THE
DEVELOPMENT OF A RELATIVELY LOW AND STRONG INVERSION, WHICH WILL
PROMOTE RELATIVELY POOR VENTILATION CONDITIONS WEDNESDAY.  A WEAK
SYSTEM WILL APPROACH THE AREA LATE THURSDAY, WHICH WILL LIKELY LEAD
TO A SWITCH TO NORTH OR NORTHWEST WINDS THURSDAY AFTERNOON OR
