FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
646 AM MST FRI FEB 12 2016

.DISCUSSION...
CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE WARM AND DRY FOR THE NEXT COUPLE
OF DAYS AS AN UPPER RIDGE SLOWLY SHIFTS EASTWARD. WINDS WILL ALSO
BE ON THE DECREASE ALOFT WHICH WILL KEEP VENT RATES POOR TO FAIR
AGAIN TODAY WITH SOME IMPROVEMENT SATURDAY. RELATIVE HUMIDITIES
WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO BE VERY LOW WITH MIN RH`S IN THE TEENS AND
EVEN SINGLE DIGITS FOR NEXT SEVERAL DAYS WITH JUST POOR TO FAIR
RECOVERIES. A SLIGHT COOL DOWN WITH A LITTLE HIGHER HUMIDITIES IS
EXPECTED FOR MONDAY AFTER A WEAK FRONTAL PASSAGE. THEN EVERYTHING
WILL GO BACK TO THE CONDITIONS WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING IN THE
PAST FEW DAYS...UNTIL A MOIST AIR MASS FROM THE BAJA AREA BRINGS
BACK RAIN CHANCES TOWARD THE END OF THE WEEK.
