   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.
