   ...SYNOPSIS...
   SWLY FLOW ALOFT DOWNSTREAM FROM A SHORTWAVE TROUGH OVER CA/NV WILL
   CONTINUE ACROSS SERN AZ...SRN NM...AND FAR W TX TODAY. A SFC HIGH
   ALONG THE E COAST WILL SHIFT EWD BY TONIGHT...WHILE ANOTHER BROAD
   AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE MOVES SEWD FROM MT/WY ACROSS THE NRN/CNTRL
   PLAINS THROUGH THIS EVENING. A WEAK SFC LOW IS LOCATED ACROSS WRN
   AZ/SRN NV EARLY THIS MORNING TO THE E OF THE UPPER TROUGH...AND IT
   SHOULD SHIFT SLOWLY EWD TODAY. THE RESULTANT MODEST PRESSURE
   GRADIENT BETWEEN THIS SFC LOW AND HIGH PRESSURE APPROACHING FROM THE
   PLAINS WILL INDUCE SLY/SWLY WINDS OF 10-20 MPH ACROSS A SMALL
   PORTION OF SERN AZ...SRN NM...AND FAR W TX THIS AFTERNOON.
   ASSOCIATED DOWNSLOPE WARMING/DRYING WILL CONTRIBUTE TO LOWERED RH
   VALUES FOR A FEW HOURS...ESPECIALLY ALONG AND NEAR THE INTERNATIONAL
   BORDER. HOWEVER...FUELS ARE UNRECEPTIVE ACROSS THIS REGION...AND
   WITH ONLY A MARGINAL REDUCTION IN RH VALUES EXPECTED...NO ELEVATED
   AREA HAS BEEN DELINEATED FOR SERN AZ/SRN NM/FAR W TX.
