.DISCUSSION...

A deep upper trough centered over AZ this morning will continue
to move east today. Unfortunately, most of the moisture that has
returned this morning will be shoved east soon by a lead mid
level shortwave. Will keep some isolated PoPs in across the area,
but not expecting much today. Extra cloud cover will won`t help
keep temperatures down much with highs still forecasted to be well
above normal.


Look for quiet, dry conditions to start the new week after the
passage of this system. Weak upper ridging will keep temperatures
on the warm side, but winds should remain fairly light through
midweek. Soon after, another trough will move across the Rockies
inducing a strong surface low over the Plains Thursday. While this
system won`t bring any rain, it will bring plenty of wind and
fire weather. A cold front on Friday will bring temperatures down
back toward normal.
