FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
658 AM MDT FRI JUL 29 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A SLIGHT INCREASE IN MOISTURE WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASE IN
THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY THIS AFTERNOON, BUT STILL MOSTLY CONFINED
TO THE HIGHER TERRAIN (WITH THE GILA PREFERRED) DUE TO WEAK
INSTABILITY IN THE LOWLANDS. THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WILL INCREASE
SLIGHTLY HEADING INTO THE WEEKEND AS RECYCLED MOISTURE FROM
ARIZONA AND MEXICO MOVE IN ALOFT. SLIGHTLY ELEVATED THUNDERSTORM
COVERAGE (AT LEAST BY 2016 STANDARDS) WILL CONTINUE INTO NEXT
WEEK. LOWLAND RH VALUES MAY SNEAK INTO THE MID-TEENS TODAY, BUT
WILL RECOVER BACK TO THE 20S BY TOMORROW. EXPECT EXCELLENT RH
RECOVERY IN THE HIGHER TERRAIN.
