NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
623 AM MDT TUE AUG 25 2015

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL BRING SEASONABLY WARM AND MOSTLY DRY
WEATHER TO SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO AND WEST TEXAS THROUGH EARLY NEXT
WEEK. HOWEVER SUFFICIENT AMOUNTS OF MOISTURE WILL FLOW INTO THE
REGION TO RESULT IN A FEW SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS EACH DAY WITH
MOST OF THE STORMS OCCURRING AROUND MOUNTAIN AREAS. SEVERAL STORMS
MAY PRODUCE WIND GUSTS TO 50 MPH...OTHERWISE WIND SPEEDS MOSTLY
LESS THAN 15 MPH THROUGH THE PERIOD. TEMPERATURES WILL REMAIN NEAR
OR A LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL EACH DAY. MINIMUM HUMIDITY AROUND 20 TO
30 PERCENT LOWLANDS AND 40 TO 50 PERCENT MOUNTAINS.
