Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
145 PM MDT Fri Jul 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Deep layer moisture will remain over the area through the weekend
resulting in enhanced chances for wetting precip. Heavy rainfall and
localized flooding will remain a concern for most fire zones. Rain
chances will drop a bit early next week as the upper levels dry
out while lower levels remain moist. Fair to good vent rates
Saturday with improving vent categories to start the new week.
