Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
159 PM MDT Thu Jun 22 2017

...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM MDT FRIDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure aloft will remain over Arizona and New Mexico
through the remainder of the week. Daytime max temperatures will
be near record levels today and Friday with a short- lived drying
trend which will significantly reduce storms today and Friday.
Most storms will be over the area mountains. A backdoor push from
the east beginning late Friday will bring cooler air and a
moisture increase to the region Friday evening into Saturday.
Temperatures will drop pack to normal for the weekend and all of
next week as east winds and increasing moisture bring substantial
storm chances to the region for the weekend which will continue
well into next week.
