While one amplified trough lifts northeast along the Atlantic coast,
another will overspread much of the Inter-mountain West, as a strong
jet moves from the eastern Pacific to the southern high Plains. In
response to increasing flow perpendicular to the Rockies, a lee
cyclone will organize over eastern Colorado, with a trough extending
southward along the southern high Plains.
...Portions of the southern high Plains...
A tight pressure gradient and strengthening 700-mb flow will bring
another round of breezy conditions to parts of the region on Monday.
Sustained westerly winds around 20-30 mph should develop by
afternoon from eastern Colorado southward to the Texas Trans-Pecos.
Downslope flow will encourage RH values falling below 20-25 percent
as well, which will work in tandem with drying fuels to produce
elevated fire-weather concerns across portions of southeastern New
Mexico and western Texas.
