Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
700 AM MDT Tue Jun 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorm coverage will be a little less today than on previous
days. Best chances will be over mountains and areas east of Rio
Grande. Winds will start to shift around to the west to southwest
which will begin the drying trend that will take full effect
during the later half of the week when relative humidities will
be back to around 10 percent. Winds will be on the increase
Wednesday and Thursday and come close to 20 mph. With recent
rains, fuels may need a little more time to dry out to warrant any
warnings. The dry westerly flow will back off on the weekend with
thunderstorm chances returning somewhat.
