FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
704 AM MST SUN MAR 1 2015

.DISCUSSION...
SOUTHWEST WINDS HAVE RETURNED TO THE REGION. THIS WILL GIVE US
LOWER MIN RH`S AND WARMER TEMPERATURES TODAY. ON MONDAY WE WILL
BEGIN TO FEEL THE INFLUENCE OF THE NEXT UPPER LEVEL STORM SYSTEM
AS CLOUDS AND MOISTURE WILL AGAIN SPREAD ACROSS THE AREA. WINDS ON
MONDAY COULD BE ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS...BUT RELATIVE HUMIDITIES
WILL BE WELL ABOVE 15 PERCENT. LATE MONDAY INTO TUESDAY MORNING WE WILL
SEE A CHANCE FOR LOWLAND RAIN SHOWERS AND HIGH ELEVATION SNOW
SHOWERS. WE WILL SEE BREEZY CONDITIONS ON TUESDAY...BUT LIKE
MONDAY RH`S WILL STAY ABOVE CRITICAL LEVELS. COOLER...BUT DRIER AIR
WILL ARRIVE ON WEDNESDAY. THEN ON THURSDAY A SECOND UPPER LEVEL
SYSTEM WILL BRING ANOTHER CHANCE FOR PRECIPITATION TO THE AREA. AT
THE SAME TIME A STRONG COLD FRONT WILL MOVE IN FROM THE EAST AND
WE WILL SEE A CHANCE FOR MOUNTAINS SNOWS OR LOWLAND RAIN/SNOW MIX
MAINLY EAST OF THE RIO GRANDE. NEXT WEEKEND WE WILL SEE
TEMPERATURES RECOVER BACK TOWARD NORMAL WITH DRIER CONDITIONS.
