AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE FAR NW PORTION OF THE DISCUSSION  
AREA WITH AXIS FROM 32N131W TO 25N140W. AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE 
EXTENDS FROM A LARGE ANTICYCLONIC CIRCULATION OVER NORTHERN 
MEXICO NEAR 28N107W SW TO 25N125W. ANOTHER WEAKER ANTICYCLONIC 
CIRCULATION IS CENTERED NEAR 22N131W. STRONG SUBSIDENCE WITH DRY 
AND STABLE AIR AT THE MIDDLE AND UPPER LEVELS IS W OF 120W. 
UPPER LEVEL DIFFLUENT FLOW IS ENHANCING CONVECTION WITH THE LOW 
PRES. 

A WEAK COLD EXTENDS FROM 32N35W TO 26N140W. A FEW SHOWERS AREA
