   .PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0126 AM CDT Thu Jun 01 2023/

   Modest mid-level winds will be maintained as the Four Corners trough
   moves northeast and weakens today. A weak surface trough is also
   expected to develop in eastern New Mexico. These features will
   combine to promote 15-20 mph winds across parts of central New
   Mexico. By the afternoon, RH of 10-15% will be possible. Some
   precipitation occurred on Wednesday afternoon in some portions of
   central/southeastern New Mexico. While dry and windy conditions are
   possible farther north and east, mitigated fuel dryness should
   reduce the overall fire potential. Elevated to perhaps locally
   critical conditions are expected in portions of central New Mexico.
