.DISCUSSION...
ACTIVE WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE ACROSS THE REGION. BREEZY TO
WINDY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE THE NORM THROUGH SUNDAY BEFORE
STARTING TO DECREASE EARLY NEXT WEEK AS AN UPPER RIDGE BUILDS IN.
FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS CONTINUE SOMEWHAT ELEVATED TODAY WITH
MORE STRONG WESTERLY WINDS...AND RH DROPPING RIGHT AROUND 13-18%
ACROSS THE LOWLANDS. THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT INCREASE IN MOISTURE
FROM THE WEST TODAY WHICH WILL HELP TO KEEP CRITICAL
CONDITIONS FROM DEVELOPING EXCEPT POSSIBLY SOME AREAS OVER
HUDSPETH AND SOUTHERN OTERO COUNTIES. MAY ALSO SEE ISOLATED PM
MOUNTAIN STORMS AND SLIGHT RISK OF DRY LIGHTNING. AN UPPER LOW
WILL CROSS THE REGION SUNDAY AND BRING SOME SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS TO THE AREA MOUNTAINS AND AREAS EAST OF THE RIVER.
WARM AND DRY WEATHER IS EXPECTED EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH HIGHS
WARMING INTO THE MID TO UPPER 80S OVER THE LOWLANDS BY WEDNESDAY
BUT WINDS SHOULD REMAIN BELOW 15 MPH.
