Valid 301200Z - 311200Z


Mid-level flow will continue to weaken across the Southwest
Thursday, as a mid to upper-level negatively tilted trough
progresses east northeastward over the northern Rockies. An
associated Pacific cold front will make its way as far south as
southwestern UT Thursday morning, and only weak westerly surface
winds are expected ahead of it through the afternoon across most of
AZ and NM. The exception may be near the Sacramento Mountains of NM,
where sustained wind speeds near 15-20 mph are anticipated late in
the afternoon/early evening. This is also where single-digit RH will
reside. However, confidence is too low to introduce an Elevated area
at this time since meteorological fire spread conditions will be
brief and fairly isolated.
