Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
706 AM MST Tue Nov 12 2019

.DISCUSSION...
Colder and drier airmass now in place across the region. Temperatures
today will run about 20 degrees below seasonal averages. The cooler
temperatures will keep the RH elevated today despite the lower
dewpoints. Southeast surface winds will be slackening through the
day as the push behind the front relaxes. A lot of low clouds early
today, but those will diminish through the day. Ventilation will be
greatly reduced today with the lighter winds and minimal mixing.
Warmer Wednesday with dry conditions continuing. A weak front will
push in to cool Thursday 2-5 degrees. Another front pushes in Saturday
for another minor cool down. So precipitation is expected through
the weekend.
