Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR West Texas/Southeast New Mexico
Nantional Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
932 PM CDT Sun Mar 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...

The Red Flag Warning that was in effect this evening has been
cancelled as winds have dropped below critical levels, and RHs have
begun to improve. Recovery tonight will be poor for locations west
of the Pecos River, and fair elsewhere. While RHs Monday will drop
below 15% for all but the northern Permian Basin, winds will remain
under 20 mph, thus critical fire weather conditions are not expected.
Winds will increase Tuesday as a strong dryline develops, with
increasing fire weather concerns across the west, and the potential
for thunderstorms across the east.
