Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM

.DISCUSSION...
As the North American monsoon continues over Arizona and New
Mexico, our airmass remains moist and unstable. Storm coverage
today will be a bit less than Sunday, but local heavy rain and
flooding is still possible. Thunderstorm coverage will lessen to
isolated Tuesday and Wednesday as high pressure aloft strengthens
over New Mexico. Temperatures will warm back to normal by Tuesday
and Wednesday. A slight increase in moisture will increase
thunderstorm coverage again on Thursday and Friday as the upper
ridge of high pressure drifts more northward. Min RH values over
the zones today will range from 35% to 45% lowlands and 50% to 60%
above 7500 feet. Values will be about 5% lower on Tuesday.
&&

...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.
