Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
127 PM MDT Thu Jul 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Moisture will remain plentiful across the region for much of the
week to come. This will result in daily chances for wetting
precip. As the soil becomes more saturated, the risk for flash
flooding will increase in the days ahead. Temps will stay a bit
below normal with favorable RH values throughout the period. Vent
rates should be fair to good most areas on a daily basis.

&&

...Percentages shown in the sky/weather portion reflect
sky cover amount...

...Mean elevations used to obtain mixing heights as follows:
Zone 110 - Reserve   (5900 ft)
Zone 111 - Deming    (4300 ft)
Zone 112 - Las Cruces(3900 ft)
Zone 113 - Ruidoso   (6900 ft)

Ventilation categories are determined by criteria established
by the state of New Mexico.
