Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
153 PM MST Mon Feb 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Upper ridge will be moving over the region bringing warmer and
dry air into the region along with lighter winds. High
temperatures will be in the 70s to near 80 for the lowlands the
next couple of days with a slight cool down for Thursday. There
will be an upper trough moving north of the area Thursday which
will increase the winds across the Borderland to 20 to 35 mph
which will combine with relative humidities in the lower to mid
teens to create critical fire weather conditions. Breezy winds
will continue through the weekend which could bring more critical
conditions to the area.
