.DISCUSSION...
This morning W TX/SE NM is on backside of upper trough and east side
of upper ridge centered off the CA coast.  Another trough moves down
across the Central Plains Sunday and keeps the ridge from building
in for a few days.  By Thursday the ridge axis will shift east
crossing the Rockies on Friday.  As it does another upper trough
will move ashore the West Coast reaching NM by next Sunday.

A cold front moved through last evening with NW wind that will
come back around to the SW during the day as a new leeside trough
develops.  Have clear skies this morning with a chilly start to
the day.  Another weak front moves through Sunday.  This will put
temperatures on a roller coaster bouncing above and below 60
degrees across the central CWA.  However by midweek highs should
climb into the 70s nearly areawide as the upper ridge builds in...
could see some 80s along the Rio Grande.  Lows mostly at or below
freezing the next few mornings.  At this time still no
precipitation in the forecast.
