Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
659 AM MDT Sat Oct 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Temps will run a few degrees lower today while breezy west winds
again develop. Min RH values will drop into the mid/upper teens
(lowlands) to mid-30s (above 7500 feet). Vent Rates will be
favorable, but this will quickly change on Sunday as a weak cold
front pushes in from the north, and brings limited mixing and
lighter winds to the area. Vent rates will improve by Tuesday as a
backdoor front brings increasing easterly winds, along with
cooler (near normal) temperatures.

&&
