   DIRECTION OUT OF SRN AZ INTO NWRN MX...WHILE MIDLEVEL RIDGING BUILDS
   IN ITS WAKE NEAR THE CNTRL CA COAST. A MORE POTENT NRN-STREAM
   SHORTWAVE TROUGH WILL MOVE THROUGH THE NRN PLAINS AND UPPER MS
   VALLEY...AND WILL AID IN THE SWD MOVEMENT OF A COLD FRONT ACROSS THE
   CNTRL PLAINS...WITH THE WRN SEGMENT OF THE FRONT ENTERING THE SRN
   HIGH PLAINS. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED TSTMS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS THE
   SOUTHWEST INTO THE SRN PLAINS...WITH MORE WIDESPREAD WETTING RAIN
   POTENTIAL E OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE OF NM/CO.

   ...PARTS OF WRN NM AND NRN/ERN AZ...
   A RIBBON OF ENHANCED MIDLEVEL MOISTURE WILL OVERSPREAD PARTS OF
   NM/AZ ALONG THE NRN PERIPHERY OF THE AFOREMENTIONED WEAK UPPER LOW
   OVER SRN AZ. WITH RICHER LOW-LEVEL MOISTURE REMAINING POSITIONED TO
   THE E OVER THE HIGH PLAINS OF ERN NM...A VERY DRY SUB-CLOUD LAYER
   WILL DEVELOP AMIDST STRONG BOUNDARY-LAYER HEATING. DESPITE SLOW

   FORECAST TO ACCOMPANY ANY DEVELOPING TSTMS...WHICH WILL LIKELY BE
   FOCUSED OVER HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS. GUSTY/ERRATIC DOWNDRAFT WINDS ARE
