REGION. THE POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLASH FLOODING  
WILL INCREASE EACH AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES WILL TREND NEAR TO BELOW  
NORMAL MOST AREAS OVER THE WEEKEND. LIGHTER WINDS ALOFT WILL LEAD TO  
POOR VENTILATION. STORM MOTIONS FRIDAY WILL BECOME MORE SOUTH TO  
NORTH, OR EVEN SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST. SLOW STORM MOTIONS OVER THE  
WEEKEND WILL TRANSITION MORE FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST AS THE UPPER  
HIGH REORGANIZES OVER THE FOUR CORNERS REGION EARLY NEXT WEEK. THE
