Mid-level troughing over the Southwest will shift eastward as a
ridge builds over the West early this week. Strong flow aloft may
linger over the Southwest through today keeping surface winds gusty.
However, as the upper-level system continues to shift east, flow
aloft will weaken. In addition to the weakening flow, widespread
precipitation and cooler temperatures underneath the upper low will
moderate the air mass. Isolated pockets of dry and breezy conditions
are possible, mainly over portions of far southern NM. However, the
temporal and spatial coverage of these conditions will be small and
fire concerns should remain localized.
