FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
658 AM MST MON FEB 8 2016

.DISCUSSION...
OUR QUIET WEATHER PATTERN WILL CONTINUE FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS. AN
UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL DOMINATE OUR WEATHER THIS WEEK. THAT MEANS
WE WILL SEE MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES...DRY CONDITIONS...ABOVE NORMAL
TEMPERATURES AND LIGHT WINDS. MIN RH`S WILL BE ON THE LOW SIDE OF
THINGS WITH MOST LOWLAND LOCATIONS BEING 10 TO 15% DURING MUCH OF
THE WEEK. THE MOUNTAINS WILL BE A LITTLE HIGHER FROM 15 TO 25
PERCENT...BUT WITHOUT THE LACK OF STRONG WINDS...CRITICAL FIRE
CONDITIONS ARE NOT EXPECTED DURING THE NEXT 7 DAYS.

&&

...PERCENTAGES SHOWN IN THE SKY/WEATHER PORTION REFLECT
SKY COVER AMOUNT...

...MEAN ELEVATIONS USED TO OBTAIN MIXING HEIGHTS AS FOLLOWS:
ZONE 110 - RESERVE   (5900 FT)
ZONE 111 - DEMING    (4300 FT)
ZONE 112 - LAS CRUCES(3900 FT)
ZONE 113 - RUIDOSO   (6900 FT)
