Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
150 PM MDT Mon Jun 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Thunderstorm coverage will be a little less today than over the
weekend with a continued decrease on Tuesday. Best chances will be
over mountains and areas east of Rio Grande. Winds will start to
shift around to the west to southwest tomorrow which will begin
the drying out which will take full effect for the later half of
the week when relative humidities will be back to around 10
percent. Winds will be on the increase Wednesday and Thursday
which could come close to 20 mph. With recent rains, fuels may
need a little more time to dry out to warrant any warnings. Some
thunderstorm chances will return for the weekend.

&&
