FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WEST TEXAS/SOUTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
1001 PM CDT THU MAY 26 2016

.DISCUSSION...
FIRE WEATHER CONCERNS HAVE EASED TONIGHT AS WINDS HAVE DECREASED. OVERNIGHT
RECOVERY WILL BE POOR OUT WEST AND GOOD TO EXCELLENT ACROSS THE
EAST. DESPITE VERY DRY AIR REMAINING THROUGH SATURDAY...CRITICAL
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED DUE TO LIGHTER WIND
SPEEDS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. LIGHT WINDS DURING THIS TIME COULD
PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY FOR CONTROLLED BURNING. SUNDAY THE DRYLINE
WILL RETREAT WEST INCREASING MOISTURE LEVELS AND PROVIDING A GOOD
CHANCE FOR SHOWERS WITH THE HIGHEST RAIN CHANCES IN THE EAST AND
DECREASING FARTHER WEST.
