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

.DISCUSSION...
Deep monsoonal flow continues over the region. This will result
in increased chances for wetting precip along with a threat of
flash flooding as parts of the region become saturated by repeat
storms. Temps will tend to run a bit below normal through the
period resulting in elevated Min RH values. Meanwhile vent
categories will likely remain in the fair to occasionally good
categories into the weekend.

&&

...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.
