Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM

.DISCUSSION...
Though the upper high that has dominated the weather pattern in
the Southwest will change positions over the next several days, it
will still be in the vicinity. A few thunderstorms will form over
the Gila Region Saturday afternoon, and additional moisture will
allow a few storms to form over much of the area (especially west
of the Rio Grande) early next week, but little rainfall is
expected. After high temperatures 6 to 10 degrees above normal on
the weekend, a back door front will lower temperatures closer to
normal, which is still hot this time of year. Other than local
thunderstorm outflows, no significant winds are expected.
