FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
730 AM MDT MON AUG 22 2016

.DISCUSSION...
DESPITE SLIGHTLY DRIER AIR ALOFT WORKING IN, EXPECT ANOTHER
FAIRLY ACTIVE DAY WITH SCATTERED STRONG THUNDERSTORMS ACROSS THE
AREA, BUT LIKELY WITH A SOMEWHAT LATER START THAN YESTERDAY. SOME
DRIER AIR WILL START WORKING IN FROM THE WEST TOMORROW, CAUSING
THE MAIN FOCUS FOR THUNDERSTORMS TO SHIFT EAST OF THE RIO GRANDE.
WE WILL RETURN TO MORE OF A TYPICAL TERRAIN-FAVORING THUNDERSTORM
PATTERN TOWARDS THE END OF THE WEEK. WITH THE ELEVATED PRECIP
THREAT, EXPECT HIGHER RH VALUES. WE WILL SEE GENERALLY LIGHT S TO
SE WINDS TODAY, BUT WESTERLY WINDS WILL START WORKING INTO SW NEW
MEXICO TOMORROW.
