.DISCUSSION...
A cold front has moved through the area today bringing gusty
northeast winds and very dry air. Clearing skies and light winds
tonight will allow temps to drop to near freezing across southeast
New Mexico, the Davis Mountains, and the Permian Basin while being
marginally warmer in the Trans Pecos and Big Bend. Tomorrow will
be cooler but still only around normal for this time of year
before warm south winds raise highs back well above normal on
Thanksgiving Day, then possibly breaking records on Friday with
very unseasonable 80s for most locations. Another cold front
arrives Saturday but will not even be strong enough to get us back
down to normal. The warmth continues Sunday and even warmer on
Monday with more record highs again possible.

.FIRE WEATHER...
Elevated to near critical fire weather conditions continue this
afternoon across a large part of the area. Northerly winds behind a
cold front continue to gust near 40 mph with rh`s 10 to 20 percent.
Cooler temperatures arrive this evening as winds diminish with
sunset. Will continue the RFD through the afternoon and continue to
advise against burning. Even though RH`s will remain low in the
coming days, winds will be fairly light.
