Fire Weather Planning Forecast For West Texas/Southeast New Mexico
National Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
319 AM CDT Sat May 26 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Much of the area has had recent wetting rains and ERCs have turned more
moist. However hot and dry conditions are expected the next several days
and fuels will likely dry again. As this occurs elevated fire weather
concerns are possible beginning Sunday, especially across the southeast
New Mexico plains, Guadalupe Mountains and portions of the Permian Basin.
