FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
723 AM MDT THU JUL 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...
DRIER AIR ALOFT HAS WORKED INTO THE AREA FROM THE NORTH, AND THIS
WILL HELP REDUCE AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORM ACTIVITY TODAY, WITH JUST
A FEW STORMS OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN, WITH AN ISOLATED STORM OR
TWO TRYING TO WORK INTO THE LOWLANDS, WHERE DRIER AIR IN THE LOW
LEVELS WILL DROP MINIMUM RH VALUES TO THE 18-22 PERCENT RANGE.
EXPECT MORE OF AN UPTICK IN THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE TOMORROW AS
SOME MOISTURE WORKS ITS WAY BACK INTO THE AREA, WITH THE GILA
LIKELY SEEING THE BEST COVERAGE AND RAINFALL. THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY SHOULD INCREASE EARLY NEXT WEEK AS MOISTURE FROM A
DISTURBANCE PASSING THROUGH NORTHERN MEXICO WORKS ITS WAY
NORTHWARD.
