FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
656 AM MST THU FEB 11 2016

.DISCUSSION...
WE WILL BE PRETTY DRY FOR THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS...BUT WE ARE NOT
EXPECTING CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS AS WE SHOULD SEE LIGHT
SURFACE WINDS THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. UPPER LEVEL
HIGH PRESSURE IS FIRMLY IN CONTROL OF OUR WEATHER AND IT LOOKS TO
STAY IN CONTROL THROUGH THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. THE RIDGE
WILL GIVE US MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES...ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WITH
LITTLE OR NO CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION. MIN RH`S WILL BE VERY DRY
WITH READINGS DROPPING TO NEAR 10% IN MOST LOCATIONS THROUGH
SUNDAY. FOR THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK WE WILL SEE SLIGHTLY
HIGHER MIN RH`S BUT STILL IN THE MID TEENS IN THE LOWLANDS AND
NEAR 20% IN THE MOUNTAINS.
