Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
147 PM MDT Tue Jun 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Drier air has started to move in from the west and should be
through most of the area by Wednesday putting an end to the
showers and thunderstorms for at least a few days. Temperatures
will be warming back to around 100 degrees for many lowland
locations starting tomorrow and continuing into early next week.
Relative humidities will be falling back into the upper single
digits to lower teens. There will be a little surge in moisture
going into the weekend and early next week with isolated
thunderstorms returning. Winds will be occasionally breezy the
next couple of days and again early next week which will bring
about near critical conditions.
