Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
152 PM MST Thu Nov 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Upper level high pressure keeps warm and dry conditions over the
region. Near record temperatures will be observed in the next few
days. At the same time, dry air remains in place with minimum
relative humidities in the mid teens and up to the low 20s in the
Sacramento Mountains. This dry setting should last until Tuesday,
when a cold front moves in, bringing the minimum RHs into the low
20s area wide. Vent rates appear to remain mostly in the poor
category, with fair and even good conditions tomorrow and Tuesday.
