   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF EASTERN ARIZONA INTO
   CENTRAL NEW MEXICO...

   ...Synopsis...
   A mid-level trough will begin to move offshore into the Atlantic as
   a second trough aloft ejects into the Plains states tomorrow. Cooler
   air will surge southeastward across the eastern U.S. as surface high
   pressure ushers in, while dry and breezy conditions take shape
   across the Southwest due to downslope flow and surface lee-troughing
   present across the southern High Plains.

   ...Portions of the Lower Colorado River Valley...
   60+ kt mid-level flow will overspread Arizona and New Mexico as the
   mid-level trough ejects into the Plains states. A deep, dry boundary
   layer will induce downward mixing/momentum transport to encourage
   widespread 25+ mph sustained westerly surface winds. These stronger
   winds will overlap with 10-20% RH for several hours during the
   afternoon, warranting the introduction of Critical highlights. A
   broader region of Elevated surface conditions will also be present
   across the Southwest, however, at least locally Critical conditions
   will also be possible throughout the Elevated area.
