Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
705 AM MDT Mon Jun 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Moist unstable air will continue to flow into southern New Mexico
and west Texas resulting in more showers and thunderstorms across
the Borderland today and tonight. A few storms may again produce
damaging winds...hail and heavy rains. High pressure aloft and
westerly winds will bring very warm mostly drier weather across
the region Tuesday through next weekend. Expect high temperatures
back around 100 degrees by Wednesday with humidities falling
to around 10 percent.  Breezy winds Thursday and Friday should
fall short of critical speeds, but still create some fire danger
in areas lacking recent rains.
