Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
701 AM MDT Fri Sep 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A deepening upper level trough over the western U.S. will begin to
pull some enhanced mid-level moisture into areas east of the Rio
Grande today. This will result in an increase in showers and
thunderstorms through Saturday, but dry air will persist in SW
New Mexico. Temperatures will slowly drop to near-normal by
Sunday. A backdoor cold front will bring cooler temperatures and
more widespread precipitation by Tuesday, mainly for areas east
of the Continental Divide.
