FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
726 AM MDT SUN AUG 31 2014

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN U.S. WILL CONTINUE TO
KEEP OUR AREA WARM AND DRY AIR UNDER CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES.
THIS SHOULD CONTINUE AT LEAST THROUGH MID WEEK. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES
WILL CONTINUE ABOVE NORMAL UNTIL THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEK. AFTER
WEDNESDAY THE UPPER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE SHOULD SHIFT MORE TO THE
EAST AND ALLOW SOME SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE TO BEGIN TO RETURN INTO
OUR AREA. THIS IN TURN SHOULD BRING MORE CLOUDINESS MAINLY IN THE
AFTERNOONS...AND ALSO BRING INCREASING CHANCES FOR AFTERNOON AND EVENING
STORMS ACROSS SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO AND FAR WEST TEXAS...ESPECIALLY
FOR THE MOUNTAINS.
