Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
158 PM MDT Sun Sep 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Westerly winds aloft have pushed yesterday`s moisture (mainly east
of the Rio Grande) farther east and thus will bring dry conditions
to all areas except SE Hudspeth county. Drier air will persist over
SW New Mexico again Monday and most of Tuesday mainly west of the
rio Grande. Temperatures will slowly trend down and will be at or
below normal for the week ahead. A backdoor cold front will bring
cooler temperatures and more widespread precipitation with some
possibly heavy with a flooding risk starting Wednesday into the
rest of the week for all areas.
