Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
201 PM MDT Sun Jul 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A very moist and unstable airmass will persist again today across
the fire zones leading to widespread thunderstorms and some
flooding. Moisture will decrease some Monday through Wednesday
with slightly less thunderstorm coverage, along with flood
potential, as upper high moves back over eastern New Mexico. This
will bring slightly warmer daytime temperatures. Min RH values for
today will run around 35% to 45% lowlands and 50% to 50%
mountains.

&&

...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.
