Well, the 4-corners high has been pushed back to New Mexico, by the every persistent West Coast Trough. This means a dry SW flow will set up. As that trough digs farther southward, breezy conditions and slight cooling is expected by Wednesday into Thursday. 4-Corners high builds back into the district by the holiday weekend, raising temps up a few degrees, to just above normal. Dry conditions will prevail.
