Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
633 AM MST Wed Mar 1 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Continued dry conditions, but much lighter winds are on tap for
the next several days. The light winds will limit vent rates
today, but conditions will improve by Friday. Temperatures will
slowly climb above normal through Friday, then spike to around 10
degrees above normal for the weekend. Relative humidities will
continue to fall into the teens for most lowland locations but
light winds will limit the fire danger until Sunday when
west-southwest winds will increase and near critical conditions
are possible, especially west of the Rio Grande.
