A Fire Weather Watch remains in effect for Wednesday for The Guadalupe Mountains, the Van Horn area, and the Southeast New Mexico Plains for winds of 20 to 35 mph in the mountains and near 20 mph in the plains. Temperatures will be at or above record levels again and minimum RHs will be able to fall to near 10 percent.
