   Valid 291200Z - 301200Z

   A low-amplitude upper trough is forecast to move from the Southwest
   into the southern Rockies by Sunday night. A weak surface low may
   begin to develop across portions of NM in response to this feature.
   Another day of elevated fire-weather conditions is expected over
   portions of NM and adjacent west TX, though the critical threat
   appears diminished compared to previous days. 

   ...New Mexico and adjacent west TX...
   While winds should generally diminish across much of the southern
   Rockies/Plains compared to previous days, relatively dry and breezy
   conditions will persist across much of NM into adjacent portions of
   west TX. Sustained winds of 15-20 mph combined with minimum RH
   values of 10-20% will result in elevated fire-weather conditions for
   several hours on Sunday afternoon.
