Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
159 PM MDT Sun Apr 30 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Northwest flow over the region will bring a return to hot and dry
conditions for much of the upcoming week. Relative humidities
will return back to the single digits to mid teens starting Monday
and remain so through the week. Winds will start out occasionally
breezy but should remain under critical criteria through Tuesday
before decreasing for the later half of the week as an upper ridge
builds over the region. Vent rates will start out very good to
excellent but fall into the fair to good range as winds decrease
the second half of the week.
