.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 0202 AM CDT Mon May 27 2024/

Elevated fire weather conditions are expected again for Tuesday as a
weak disturbance migrates across the southern High Plains. The very
dry air mass currently in place across the region will remain in
place at least through Tuesday. Low-amplitude shortwave ridging
aloft will shift east through the day as a weak upper disturbance
approaches from northwest Mexico. Although the surface mass response
will be fairly modest, breezy westerly winds should be somewhat more
widespread as compared to Monday with similar relative humidity and
fuel conditions. As such, another day of slightly more widespread
elevated conditions is expected across southern NM and portions of
southwest/far West TX. Drier/windier solutions hint that localized
critical conditions are possible in the lee of more prominent
terrain features, but confidence in widespread critical conditions
is too low to warrant additional highlights.
