An amplified and progressive mid-level flow pattern will persist
over the CONUS as a Pacific trough is forecast to rapidly deepen
over parts of the western US before ejecting eastward over the
southern Plains. In response, a strong lee low will develop,
supporting gusty winds across parts of West TX. However, cool
temperatures and widespread recent precipitation should limit
fire-weather concerns.

As the upper trough and surface low move across the southern Plains,
strong southerly winds and pockets of lower humidity are possible
over parts of West TX and southern NM. Gusts of 25-35 mph and RH

of southern New Mexico into the Trans-Pecos. However, unreceptive
fuels are not expected to support widespread concerns.
