AN INCREASE IN LOW-LEVEL SLY/SWLY WINDS ACROSS PORTIONS OF SRN
AZ/SWRN NM IS EXPECTED AS SFC LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS FROM SRN NV TO
SRN AZ AND THE PRESSURE GRADIENT BECOMES MODESTLY ENHANCED. WHILE
TEMPERATURES ARE NOT FORECAST TO BECOME OVERLY WARM ACROSS THIS
REGION...RH VALUES SHOULD FALL INTO THE 15-20 PERCENT RANGE FOR A
FEW HOURS SAT AFTERNOON AS DIURNAL MIXING BECOMES MAXIMIZED.
