   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0216 AM CST Fri Dec 09 2016/

   ...SYNOPSIS...
   With quasi-zonal flow aloft across much of the CONUS, a low
   amplitude trough with attendant mid/upper-level speed maximum is
   forecast to advance eastward from the West Coast to the central
   Rockies on Saturday. A surface lee trough will develop across the
   central and southern High Plains by Saturday afternoon in response
   to the large-scale ascent preceding the upper trough/speed maximum.

   ...PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN HIGH PLAINS...
   Locally strong winds of 15-25 mph appear probable across mainly
   eastern NM Saturday afternoon as the surface lee trough strengthens.
   Downslope westerly trajectories should encourage some low-level
   warming/drying of an antecedent cool airmass. However, RH values are
   forecast to become only marginally lowered, generally remaining at
   or above 20 percent. Furthermore, latest guidance suggests fuels
   will likely not be overly receptive to large fire starts on
   Saturday. Therefore, no elevated area has been introduced.
