   THE NRN HIGH PLAINS WITH A LEE TROUGH DEVELOPING SWD THIS AFTERNOON.
   
   ...SERN AZ/SWRN NM...
   VERY WARM AND DRY CONDITIONS WHICH HAVE PERSISTED OVER SRN CA AND
   THE DESERT SW WILL SPREAD EWD AS LOW-LEVEL WLYS INCREASE TO THE W OF

   THE LATE AFTERNOON. WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE 70S AND 80S...RH VALUES
