Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR West Texas/Southeast New Mexico
Nantional Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
332 AM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
It will be very hot and dry again today, but a cold front tomorrow
will bring cooler temperatures and more moisture to the area which
will last into next week. Winds ahead of the front will be modest so
no critical fire weather conditions are expected though winds will
become gusty from the northeast behind the front. There will be
chance for thunderstorms through the weekend which will create a
chance for lightning starts. Overnight recovery will be good to
excellent.
