.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 205 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020/

DISCUSSION...
Satellite shows high clouds are increasing which favoring warmer
low temps for Wed AM. Lee trof will form in ern NM and the Upper
Trans Pecos Wed under westerly mid-level flow and result in
southerly surface winds across most areas. High temps will respond
accordingly with the warmest conditions in close proximity to the
lee trof, however high clouds will limit insolation and generally
near seasonal high temps are expected. Low-level mstr will return
Thur AM, but mstr will mix e thru the day favoring warm/dry
conditions with widespread highs in the M80s. A trof passing well
to the n will drive a front Fri s, probably arriving in the nrn PB
before 00Z/Sat. Dry conditions will persist though with high in
the 80s s of the front and 70s in wake of front. By Sat AM the
front will have pushed to near the Rio Grande and low temps will
fall back into 40s across PB/SE NM Sat AM. Low-level mstr will be
present Sat PM across the Lower Trans Pecos-Big Bend and a few
-TSRA will be possible. Chances for precip will improve Sat night-
Sun PM when a shrtwv trof is likely to move across srn NM.
