Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
230 PM MDT Sat May 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Winds will decrease across all fire weather zones this evening after
another hot and dry day. Tomorrow a backdoor cold front accompanied
by a wind shift to the southeast will start to usher in low level
moisture across the region. This will rise relative humidities and
increase chances for showers and thunderstorms area wide starting
Sunday. Wetting rain chances will continue into mid week next week.
Late next week, the low level moisture will begin to move east. As
this happens areas east of the Rio will continue to have a slight
chance for rain showers and thunderstorms through. Any lingering
storms over the Gila Wilderness could produce dry lighting.
