FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
742 AM MDT THU MAY 28 2015

.DISCUSSION...

A MINOR TROUGH ALOFT MOVING THROUGH NEW MEXICO HAS BROUGHT SOME
HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS WHICH ARE RAPIDLY MOVING OFF TO THE EAST THUS
ALLOWING AMPLE WARMING THIS AFTERNOON. TEMPERATURES SHOULD REMAIN
ABOVE NORMAL TROUGH FRIDAY. A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT FROM THE EAST
IS FORECAST TO PUSH WESTWARD THROUGH MOST OF THE BORDERLAND
SATURDAY. THIS WILL GREATLY INCREASE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE CONTENT
PROVIDE AMPLE FUEL FOR SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS SATURDAY AFTERNOON AND
NIGHT. A FEW OF THESE STORMS COULD REACH SEVERE LEVELS WITH LARGE
HAIL AND DAMAGING WINDS. AN UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL
MOVE OVER THE THE BORDERLAND SUNDAY PERSISTING THROUGH TUESDAY.
RESIDUAL LOW LEVEL MOISTURE WILL PERSIST ALLOWING SOME
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY EACH DAY. THE MIN RH FIELD WILL RUN ABOUT 5%
TO 10% LOWLANDS AND 10% TO 20% ABOVE 7500 FEET HIGHLANDS BOTH
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.
