Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
145 PM MDT Sun May 27 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Continued hot and dry with Min RH values well below 10 percent
area wide. Winds should stay below criteria level despite some
afternoon breeziness the next several days. Mixing heights will
remain elevated leading to excellent ventillation. However the
potential for large fire growth remains as the Haines Index will
continue to run between 5 and 6.

&&

...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.
