.AVIATION...

VFR conditions will prevail UFN. Surface pressure rises around
1 mb/hr across northeastern NM this morning continues to
support a southeastward-plunging mP front -- now extending from
just east of KLBB southwest through KPEQ -- then eastward into
northern Chihuahua. Winds behind this front will be gusty
initially, with wind gusts near 25 knots commonplace. These winds
will subside around sunset, and may become light and variable
at many TAF locations as a weak surface ridge centers over the
southern High Plains. By a few hours after sunrise, expect light
winds out of the southwest.
