FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
127 PM MST FRI DEC 9 2016

.DISCUSSION...

THE COLD AIRMASS THAT WAS BROUGHT BY THE COLD FRONT YESTERDAY WILL
REMAIN THROUGH TONIGHT. TOMORROW, TEMPERATURES WILL INCREASE ABOUT
10 DEGREES, WHICH WILL TAKE US BACK TO ABOVE NORMAL. SIMILARLY,
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL REACH THEIR MAXIMUM VALUES TODAY, THEN THEY
WILL LOWER INTO THE 20S FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. WIND SPEEDS ARE
EXPECTED TO REMAIN FAIRLY LIGHT BETWEEN 5 TO 15 MPH WITH STRONGER
GUSTS IN THE EASTERN FIRE WEATHER ZONES AND AT THE HIGHEST
ELEVATIONS. THE ONLY MAJOR THREAT COULD BE A COLD FRONT TOWARDS THE
ENDS OF NEXT WEEK WERE A RETURN OF COLDER TEMPERATURES AND STRONGER
WINDS COULD OCCUR.
