FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
651 AM MDT SUN AUG 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A MODERATE LOW LEVEL EASTERLY FLOW WILL BE DEVELOPING OVER THE
REGION OVER THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS WHICH WILL KEEP DEEP MOISTURE
IN PLACE. SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED THROUGH MIDWEEK WITH TEMPERATURES DROPPING TO SLIGHTLY
BELOW NORMAL DUE TO THE PRECIPITATION AND EXPECTED CLOUD COVER.
WINDS OUT OF THE EAST MAY OCCASIONALLY BE GUSTY OVER 20 MPH BUT
RELATIVE HUMIDITIES WILL REMAIN HIGH...GENERALLY ABOVE 35 PERCENT
DURING THIS PERIOD. VENT RATES HOWEVER WILL BE FAIR TO GOOD DUE TO
WEAK WINDS ALOFT.
