Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
158 PM MST Sat Nov 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...
After a weekend with cooler temperatures than recent days, an
upper ridge over the Pacific will be building into the Great Basin
which will allow temperatures to rebound back to 8 to 15 degrees
above normal by Tuesday and continue through the end of next week.
Relative humidities will generally remain in the teens through
the period with winds under 15 mph except some breezy conditions
possible Tuesday. With the lighter winds and lower mixing heights
this time of year, expect vent rates to be generally poor to fair
for most of next week.

&&

...Percentages shown in the sky/weather portion reflect
sky cover amount...

...Mean elevations used to obtain mixing heights as follows:
Zone 110 - Reserve   (5900 ft)
Zone 111 - Deming    (4300 ft)
Zone 112 - Las Cruces(3900 ft)
Zone 113 - Ruidoso   (6900 ft)

Ventilation categories are determined by criteria established
by the state of New Mexico.
