Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
216 PM MST Sun Dec 10 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Dry and mild conditions will continue through most of this new week.
An upper level low pressure system is spreading considerable mid and
high level cloudiness over our area and will approach the region
Monday, with a slight chance of showers across the NM Bootheel.
Dry west/northwest flow aloft to finish out the week, with
temperatures still just above normal. Min RHs will remain at 15-25%
through the week. Mixing heights will remain fairly low along with
weak transport winds that will keep vent rate categories mostly in
the fair to poor range the next few days.

&&

...Percentages shown in the sky/weather portion reflect
sky cover amount...

...Mean elevations used to obtain mixing heights as follows:
Zone 110 - Reserve   (5900 ft)
Zone 111 - Deming    (4300 ft)
Zone 112 - Las Cruces(3900 ft)
Zone 113 - Ruidoso   (6900 ft)

Ventilation categories are determined by criteria established
by the state of New Mexico.
