FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WEST TEXAS/SOUTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
317 AM CDT FRI JUL 29 2016

.DISCUSSION...
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS THOUGH
LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL KEEP MINIMUM AFTERNOON HUMIDITIES ABOVE 20
PERCENT SO FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS WILL BE LOW. ISOLATED STORMS...
ESPECIALLY NEAR THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS...MAY RESULT IN GUSTY AND
ERRATIC WINDS AND THE POTENTIAL FOR LIGHTNING STARTS. OTHERWISE...
SOUTHEAST WINDS 10 TO 15 MPH ARE FORECAST THE NEXT FEW DAYS.
OVERNIGHT RECOVERY WILL GENERALLY BE GOOD.
