URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
945 PM MDT Sat Jun 6 2020

...Hot, Dry, and Breezy conditions for Sunday and Monday will
combine with very dry fuels and Very High to Extreme Fire Danger
to produce Red Flag conditions across Southern New Mexico and Far
West Texas...

.Several wildfires were started by dry lighting on Friday as high
pressure aloft begin to shift east as a west coast trough moved
east toward the southwestern U.S. As the upper high continues to
break down, increasing southwesterly winds at all levels will
bring in drier air. Temperatures will continue to run above
seasonal averages, as daily RH minimums bottom out in the single-
digits and low teens Sunday and Monday. Winds will be breezy on
Sunday afternoon, just barely meeting Red Flag criteria, and they
will further increase for Monday. The critical fire weather
conditions should ease on Tuesday as a frontal boundary moves in
from the north to cool temperatures and lower winds.
