Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
158 PM MDT Thu Aug 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Mainly dry conditions will continue except for far eastern zones
through Friday. Temperatures will be above normal with relative
humidities falling into the mid teens to lower 20s for the
lowlands with driest locations west of river. As an upper ridge
becomes established east of the area and an upper trough develops
off the Southern California coast, deep moisture will get drawn up
across the Borderland. This will bring scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms to the area Saturday into early next
week. Locally heavy rain and flash flooding will again be
possible, therefore little fire weather concerns.
