Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
146 PM MST Tue Nov 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High level cloudiness continues as the region remains dry and
warmer than normal through the forecast period. A weak front
moving through the region will bring slightly cooler temps for
Wednesday with readings returning to 10 degrees or more above
normal for Thanksgiving and the upcoming weekend. Min RH values
will generally be in the upper teens and 20`s until the weekend
when western zones could drop below 15%. Vent rates will generally
be poor as a ridge of high pressure settles over the area.
