Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
158 PM MDT Sun Jun 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Moisture will slowly be getting pushed eastward over the next couple
of days.  After another active afternoon and evening today, with
locally heavy rain, gusty winds and small hail with storms, coverage
will mainly be confined to the eastern and northern areas Monday. By
Tuesday, westerly low level winds will push moisture to past the Rio
Grande valley with any activity over Otero and Hudspeth counties.
Stronger zonal flow will kick in toward the end of the week with
some breezy conditions along with temperatures near the 100 degree
mark for the lowlands.  Depending on how quick fuels dry out, could
have some areas near critical conditions on Thursday.

&&
