Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
157 PM MDT Mon Sep 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Westerly flow over area will push moisture east and south with
little thunderstorm activity through at least Wednesday. Expect
relative humidities to fall into the teens to lower 20s for most
lowland locations with will combine with increasing winds the next
couple of days into the 15-20 mph range which will allow some
areas to approach critical conditions. As an upper trough digs
over the western U.S. late in the week, moisture will get drawn
into the area and thunderstorm activity will be back on the
increase, especially east of the Rio Grande. Vent rates will
remain very good to excellent for next couple of days.
