FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO

726 AM MDT SUN AUG 30 2015

.DISCUSSION...
NORTHEAST FLOW ALOFT HAS BROUGHT IN MUCH DRIER AIR ALOFT TO MOST
AREAS EAST OF THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE. THIS WILL RESULT IN A
NOTICEABLE DOWNTICK IN THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE ACROSS ALL BUT FAR
SOUTHWESTERN NEW MEXICO THIS AFTERNOON WITH RH VALUES DROPPING
INTO THE UPPER-TEENS IN PARTS OF FAR WEST TEXAS. THE SUBTROPICAL
RIDGE WILL SHIFT EAST BUT WEAKEN EARLY NEXT WEEK...WITH MOISTURE
WORKING BACK IN FROM THE WEST VERY SLOWLY...AND INCREASING PRECIP
COVERAGE FROM WEST TO EAST EACH DAY THROUGH AT LEAST MIDWEEK. WEAK
STEERING FLOW ALOFT WILL LEAD TO LOCALIZED HEAVY RAINFALL.
TEMPERATURES WILL BE NEAR SEASONAL WITH OVERALL RH VALUES SLOWLY
INCREASING THROUGH THE WEEK AS PRECIP EXPANDS.
