More Wind For Last Week Of May

Nice view to west across Denver this morning, showing snow covered Rockies in distance (from Jack Hales webcam wall).

The 500 mb trough remains stuck over the West - above is this morning's 12 UTC forecast for 500 mb valid tomorrow morning at 12 UTC.  The trough continues to keep the subtropical ridge suppressed far to south over Mexico. Another dry short wave swings across Arizona tomorrow.

With the trough come more winds - just below is 06 UTC WRF-GFS forecast for 10-m winds valid at noon tomorrow. Second below is this morning's fire weather outlook from SPC, forecasting critical wildfire conditions over southeast Arizona and much of New Mexico for tomorrow. 

Will be good to get this unusual May behind us.
