Surface pressure falls signal retreat of weak boundary back to the
n today with seasonably warm temps and unseasonably dry air s of
boundary. Boundary will surge back to the south late tonight with
the help of rain cooled air across CO/NM and front will arrive
before 12Z across the nrn half of CWFA and nearing the Rio Grande
near 00Z/Mon. Light precip is expected to develop in wake of the
front across parts of the PB especially btwn 15Z-21Z then dissipate
and redevelop farther s into the Lower Trans Pecos/PB after
06Z/Mon. Rainfall amounts may total near .50" in a few locations,
but most amounts are expected to be less. Much cooler temps will
follow the front Sun/Mon, with highs 10-25 degrees below normal!
Temp will be warmer Tue with drier air and lesser influence from
surface high pressure, but temps will still be below normal. More
seasonal temps are expected Wed-Fri with amplified mid level
ridging making a presence. A dryline may form Fri/Sat and GFS does
develop storms across the PB within falling heights and LLJ set-
up.
