FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
656 AM MDT THU SEP 29 2016

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT OVER THE BIG BEND, AND AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH
OFF THE COAST OF BAJA WILL HELP TRANSPORT MOISTURE INTO ARIZONA
AND FAR WESTERN NEW MEXICO THIS AFTERNOON. THE MOISTURE IS PARTIALLY
FROM THE REMNANTS OF T.S. ROSLYN. MODERATE INSTABILITY AND SE TO S
LOW LEVEL FLOW WILL RESULT IN SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS THIS
AFTERNOON ACROSS THE GILA AND BOOT HEEL REGIONS, WITH A FEW
ISOLATED STORMS SNEAKING IN FURTHER TO THE EAST. RESIDUAL MOISTURE
WILL KEEP SCATTERED STORMS IN THE AREA ON FRIDAY, FAVORING AREAS
WEST OF THE RIO GRANDE, WITH A DRYING TREND HEADING INTO NEXT
WEEK. WINDIER CONDITIONS EARLY NEXT WEEK WILL HELP JUMP-START THE
DRYING OF FUELS WHICH GREW THROUGH THE SUMMER.
