FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
717 AM MDT FRI JUL 22 2016

.DISCUSSION...
DRIER AND MORE STABLE AIR ALOFT WILL MOVE IN FROM THE EAST AS A
WEAK DISTURBANCE HIGH ALOFT MOVES INTO NORTHWESTERN MEXICO TODAY.
THIS WILL RESULT IN OVERALL LOWER THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE ACROSS THE
REGION, WITH AREAS WEST OF THE RIO GRANDE AND THE HIGHER
ELEVATIONS OF THE SACRAMENTOS PREFERRED. EXPECT CONTINUED TRIPLE-
DIGIT HEAT IN THE LOWLANDS, ESPECIALLY SOUTH-CENTRAL NM AND FAR
WEST TEXAS.

UPPER LEVEL MOISTURE WILL SLOWLY INCREASE THROUGH THE WEEKEND WITH
MORE WIDESPREAD AFTERNOON STORMS EXPECTED BY SUNDAY WITH OVERALL
BETTER COVERAGE LASTING MOST OF THE WEEK AHEAD. TEMPERATURES WILL
DROP BACK INTO THE 90S WITH RH VALUES INCREASING AGAIN.
