   ...Synopsis...
   ...Southern High Plains...

   An upper trough will migrate eastward across the western U.S. to the
   central and southern Rockies by Sunday morning, resulting in strong
   height falls across the southern Rockies and adjacent High Plains
   during the latter half of the period. At the surface, a weak lee low
   will develop over CO during the afternoon and breezy conditions are
   forecast across eastern NM into western TX and OK. Above-normal high
   temperatures and low RH values are expected once again today. High
   temperatures will top out in the 70s and RH values in the 8-20
   percent range. Sustained west-southwest winds around 15 mph with
   occasionally higher gusts are possible. Critical conditions, mainly
   across parts of east-central NM, may occur on a brief/spotty basis.
