Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
206 PM MST Wed Feb 26 2020

.DISCUSSION...
A high pressure area will dominate across southwestern US over the
next few days. This will start a warming trend tomorrow, when
temperatures increase into the mid 60s in the lowlands, and the
upper 40s and 50s in the mountains. During this period minimum
relative humidity will be mostly below 20 percent, but with light
winds fire weather risk is low. Ventilation rates will be mostly
poor tomorrow and Friday, but improve over the weekend due to stronger
winds. Next week, we will have our next chance for precipitation.
