Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
131 PM MDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Sufficient moisture will remain over the area resulting in daily
chances for wetting precip across all fire zones through the
forecast period. Best storm coverage looks to shift to western
zones over the weekend and then area wide again for next week.
Heavy rainfall and localized flooding will remain a concern as a
result.

&&

...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.
