Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
217 PM MDT Mon Sep 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An upper low will develop our of a trough over Arizona during the
next day or two.  This low will help to bring a back door cold front
west through the forecast area and tap some deep moisture.  Expect
some thunderstorm activity to start Tuesday over eastern half of the
area and across the entire area by Wednesday. Some of these storms
could become strong to severe with potential for localized flash
flooding. Temperatures behind the front will be 5 to 10 degrees
below normal with relative humidities remaining above 30 percent.
Winds will occasionally be breezy to windy out of the east through
Friday before decreasing for the weekend.
