Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
129 PM MDT Fri Jul 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Overall coverage of wetting precip will be reduced through the
weekend due to the arrival of slightly drier air. Most storms will
favor higher terrain and far western fire zones. Better coverage
of wetting precip again next week as better moisture returns.
Temps a bit above normal for the next several days, but somewhat
cooler than normal later 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.
