FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
703 AM MDT WED JUN 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...
A DIGGING TROUGH OFF THE CALIFORNIA COAST WILL SLOWLY PUSH THE
RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE THAT HAS BEEN OVER OUR AREA TO THE EAST
OVER THE NEXT 24-36 HOURS. INCREASING SOUTHWEST FLOW ALOFT WILL
RESULT IN BREEZIER CONDITIONS IN THE AFTERNOON...BUT IT WILL
REMAIN HOT AND DRY. HUMIDITY VALUES WILL DROP INTO THE SINGLE
DIGITS ACROSS THE LOWER ELEVATIONS...AND LOWER TEENS ABOVE 7500
FEET. STEEP LAPSE RATES...DRY AIR ALOFT...AND MODERATE MIXING
HEIGHTS WILL YIELD HAINES INDEX VALUES OF 5 TO 6. WHILE
CONDITIONS WILL BE BELOW RED FLAG CRITERIA...CAUTION IS URGED IN
AREAS OF DRY/FLASHY FUELS. A FEW GUSTS OF 20 TO 25 MPH WILL BE
POSSIBLE IN PARTS OF THE GILA AND BOOTHEEL WHERE THERE ARE ON-
GOING FIRES.

SOME LIMITED LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL MOVE IN FROM THE EAST ON
FRIDAY...BRINGING THE RISK OF THUNDERSTORMS TO THE RIO GRANDE
VALLEY AND POINTS EAST. ISOLATED DRY LIGHTNING CANNOT BE OUTRULED
OVER THE GILA. THESE CONDITIONS WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

TROPICAL MOISTURE FROM THE EAST PACIFIC MAY COME IN TO PLAY EARLY
NEXT WEEK.
