805 AM MDT SAT MAR 28 2015

.DISCUSSION...
STRONG HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES
WILL KEEP THE REGION DRY AND WITH MUCH WARMER CONDITIONS. AFTERNOON
MAX TEMPERATURES SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WILL BE NEAR DAILY RECORDS.
SKIES WILL REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR WITH AN INCREASE IN HIGH THIN
CLOUDS BY SUNDAY. MONDAY A FAST MOVING PACIFIC FRONT FROM THE
WEST WILL MOVE INTO SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO AND FAR WEST TEXAS. THIS
SYSTEM WILL BE ASSOCIATED WITH SOME MOISTURE AND INSTABILITY GIVING
US A CHANCE OF RAIN SHOWERS AND ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS FOR MONDAY
AFTERNOON THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING. DRY WEATHER RETURNS WEDNESDAY
THROUGH NEXT FRIDAY WITH DEEP DRY WESTERLY FLOW BACK OVER THE
REGION. ABOVE NORMAL TEMPS WITH LOW RH AND OCCASIONAL AFTERNOON
BREEZY WEST WINDS WILL CONTRIBUTE TO AN ELEVATED FIRE DANGER AT
THAT TIME. AFTERNOONS LOOK BREEZY BUT STILL NO BIG WIND EVENTS.
MEAN RH VALUES WILL RANGE IN THE 5% TO 15% OVER THE ENTIRE AREA
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY AFTERNOON.
