.DISCUSSION...
Dry conditions will continue this evening and tomorrow. Min RH 
values tomorrow afternoon will remain in the single digits to teens, 
but the SW wind will remain below critical thresholds. 
A dryline has set up just east of the Sacramento Mountains that 
will begin to push west Tuesday, however only raising min RH in 
Otero and Hudspeth counties. The moisture, with increased RH and 
rain chances, will gradually push further west each day through 
the weekend. The best rain chances on Wednesday will be east of 
the Rio Grande Valley, and east of the Divide on Thursday, with 
more widespread chances this weekend. Temperatures will remain in 
the mid to upper 90s through the week, with a few lowland 
locations possibly reaching 100 degrees on Tuesday.
