FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
653 AM MDT SAT SEP 27 2014

.DISCUSSION...
SUFFICIENT MOISTURE TO ALLOW SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY
WILL REMAIN IN PLACE INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK FOR MOST OF THE
FORECAST AREA. EXPECT ONLY ISOLATED TO WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE SACRAMENTO MTNS TODAY WHILE MOST OF THE
LOWER ELEVATIONS REMAIN DRY. HOWEVER...A STRONG UPPER LEVEL LOW
NOW OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA WILL MOVE SLOWLY INLAND THE NEXT FEW
DAYS...TRIGGERING SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS FROM THE BOOTHEEL INTO
THE GILA REGION THIS AFTERNOON INTO TONIGHT...THEN ACROSS THE
REST OF THE REGION TOMORROW INTO MONDAY. THIS SYSTEM COULD BRING
STRONG TO POSSIBLY SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION SUNDAY AND
MONDAY. WEST WINDS BEHIND THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING DRY WEATHER WITH
TEMPERATURES NEAR OR A LITTLE ABOVE NORMAL TUESDAY THROUGH THE
END OF THE WEEK AHEAD. MINIMUM RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL REMAIN ABOVE
30 PERCENT THROUGH MONDAY...THEN FALL BACK INTO THE TEENS AND 20S
TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
