Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
201 PM MDT Mon May 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Breezy conditions expected each afternoon through Wednesday but
speeds should remain below critical criteria. Besides the next 24
hours when some eastern zones may keep humidities above 15 to 20
percent, expect them to fall into the 5 to 15 percent range through
the next week with some of the warmest temperatures of the year
coming Wednesday and Thursday.  Winds will be increasing for
Thursday and Friday to 20 to 30 mph or stronger which will combine
with the low RH`s and create likely critical conditions.  Winds
decrease for the holiday weekend but will still remain breezy. With
the strong winds however, vent rates will generally remain
excellent.
