The upper low centered over the Great Basin and Southwest is
forecast to slowly weaken through the remainder of the weekend into
the early work week. As the upper low slowly breaks down, flow aloft
will also become increasingly meridional and weaken with time. As
the air mass slowly cools from the advancing cold core and
increasing precipitation/cloud cover, the overlap of strong winds
and low RH will constrict. Isolated pockets of dry and breezy
conditions may persist over more sheltered areas of the Southwest
across western NM and far eastern AZ. However, the coverage and the
temporal continuity of sustained elevated fire-weather conditions is
unlikely to reach elevated criteria D2/Monday.
