REGION...PROVIDING ONE DAY OF BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES BEFORE THEY
QUICKLY CLIMB BACK ABOVE NORMAL BY MONDAY. LOCATIONS ACROSS THE DAVIS
MTNS...MARFA PLATEAU...AND BIG BEND AREA COULD SEE MIN RH DROP TO 10
T0 15 PERCENT SUNDAY AND MONDAY...THOUGH LIGHT 20 FT WINDS PRECLUDE
CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS. NOCTURNAL RECOVERY WILL BE FAIR TO
