                    WEAK RIDGING BUILDING EASTWARD INTO NM.  WEST-NW FLOW IS LEADING TO SOME DRYING TODAY AND ALSO RESULTING IN A SUBSIDENCE INVERSION, THAT HAS CAPPED ALL CONVECTION OTHER THA FAIR WEATHER CUMULUS.
                   FLOW IS NONDESCRIPT, EVEN MORE SO AT LOWER LEVELS.   SEE NO FORCING OTHER THAN DAYTIME HEATING AND TERRAIN EFFECTS.  NAM IS BULLISH ABOUT THUNDERSTORM AND RAINSHOWER CHANCES FOR THE MOST PART FOR MOST OF THE REMAINING DAYS THIS WEEK. AT THE SAME TIME, THE GFS MODEL DOES NOT GENERATE ANYTHING IN THE WAY OF PRECIP OR THUNDER UNTIL AFTER FRIDAY THE 17'TH.
