.DISCUSSION...
Fewer storms the next few days with the best coverage west of the
Rio Grande. However all zones will still see at least a chance for
some wetting precip through the period. Increased precip chances
are expected again after the weekend. Min RH`s will continue to
run above 20% for the next seven days, and winds are not expected
to be a widespread problem, though very strong wind gusts will be
possible in and near any thunderstorms that develop.

&&

...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.
