shortwave trough will encourage a southward shift and modest
deepening of the parent upper trough. At the surface, a cold front
is expected to move through the southern Plains and much of the MS
valley while high pressure remains centered over the central

Some breezy and dry conditions are possible across portions of
western NM and the desert Southwest but localized nature of the
strongest winds should keep any fire weather threat isolated. Fire
weather conditions are not expected elsewhere across the CONUS.
