FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
719 AM MDT WED OCT 29 2014

.DISCUSSION...
UPPER RIDGING WILL KEEP THINGS DRY AND MILD THROUGH THURSDAY ACROSS
THE REGION. SURFACE FLOW WILL INCREASE FROM THE EAST AND
SOUTHEAST INTO FRIDAY ALLOWING FOR A SLIGHT INCREASE IN LOW LEVEL
MOISTURE LEVELS. THE COMBINATION OF MOISTURE AND THE APPROACHING
TROUGH COULD PRODUCE SCATTERED WETTING RAINS AND BUMP UP THE LAL
ESPECIALLY FOR THE MOUNTAIN ZONES FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. DRY WEATHER SHOULD PREVAIL SATURDAY AND SUNDAY WITH THE
UPPER FLOW INCREASING FROM THE SOUTHWEST AS AN UPPER LOW PASSES TO
OUR NORTH. THIS WILL RESULT IN INCREASED SOUTHWEST WINDS MIXING
DOWN BY SUNDAY AFTERNOON CREATING A BREEZY TO WINDY AFTERNOON
ACROSS THE REGION. A SLOW MOVING UPPER TROUGH COULD BRING
WIDESPREAD RAIN TO THE LOWLANDS AND POSSIBLY A LITTLE SNOW IN
HIGHEST ELEVATIONS
