FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
643 AM MDT SAT JUL 23 2016


.DISCUSSION...
DRIER HAS WORKED INTO MUCH OF THE FORECAST AREA FROM THE EAST AS
HIGH PRESSURE HAS DRIFTED BACK WEST OVER THE REGION. THIS HAS
DRIVEN THE BEST MOISTURE OF THE MONSOON PLUME WEST INTO AZ. BEST
MOISTURE FAVORS FAR SW NEW MEXICO FOR AFTN/EVE THUNDERSTORMS
TODAY. SACRAMENTO MOUNTAINS WILL STILL SEE SOME ISOLATED ACTIVITY
AS WELL, BUT THE LOWLANDS OF SOUTH-CENTRAL NM AND FAR WEST TEXAS,
SHOULD BE DRY AND HOT. RH WILL TREND DOWN TODAY AS TEMPERATURES
TREND UP. EXPECT AN INCREASE IN THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE LATE SUNDAY
AS THE UPPER RIDGE SHIFTS AND ALLOWS RECYCLED UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE
TO WORK INTO THE AREA. THIS WILL BOOST RH VALUES HEADING INTO NEXT
WEEK AFTER THEY BOTTOM OUT IN THE MID-TEENS LOWLANDS /LOWER-30S
HIGHER ELEVATIONS OVER THE WEEKEND.
