FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
633 AM MDT THU SEP 18 2014

.DISCUSSION...
THE REMNANTS OF HURRICANE ODILE ARE EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE
REGION TODAY. THIS WILL BRING THE THREAT FOR HEAVY RAIN AND FLASH
FLOODING. WE COULD SEE SOME STRONG GUSTY WINDS IN AND NEAR THE
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS. BY FRIDAY THE REMNANTS OF ODILE WILL BE
MOVING TO OUR EAST...BUT WE WILL STILL CONTINUE TO SEE A CHANCE
FOR RAIN. OUR RAIN CHANCES WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE WEEKEND INTO
THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. WINDS OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS
WILL STAY BELOW CRITICAL LEVELS AND WE WILL CONTINUE TO SEE VERY
GOOD RH RECOVERIES EACH DAY.
