Fire Weather Planning Forecast for New Mexico and Far West Texas
National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
211 PM MST Thu Feb 23 2017

...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM MST THIS EVENING...
...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM MST THIS EVENING...
...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FRIDAY AFTERNOON...
...HIGH WIND WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 AM MST FRIDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
Friday near critical fire weather conditions will occur for most
southern fire weather zones as the upper level trough that brought
wind, dust and red flag conditions to the area today begins to push
east. Behind the upper level trough breezy to windy conditions will
remain and combine with relative humidities in the upper single
digits. At this point the only fly in the ointment is the winds on
Friday, they may fall just short of necessary speeds and duration.
For now have decided to go with a fire weather watch for Friday
afternoon and will wait for another model run to upgrade or
downgrade the watch. The next critical day could be on Sunday when
the area gets hit with another round of very windy and dry
conditions. This will drop both winds and min RH`s close to Red Flag
conditions in the lowlands. The start of next week will bring more
winds with min RH`s above critical thresholds.

...HIGH WIND WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM THIS MORNING TO 6 AM

.DISCUSSION...
High fire danger today as very dry conditions will combine with
very strong surface winds to give us several hours of Red Flag
conditions. Today min RH`s will be near 10% in the lowlands and
in the upper teens to near 20% in the mountains. This afternoon surface
winds will be very strong from the west at 30 to 35 mph with
gusts to 45 mph. Stronger winds and wind gusts are possible on
east of area mountains. Friday and Saturday very dry conditions
continue, but winds will stay a little below critical levels.
Sunday both winds and min RH`s will be close to Red Flag
conditions in the lowlands. Next Tuesday will bring another round
of strong winds, but min RH`s at that time look to be in the 20`s
so Red Flag conditions are not expected.

...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM TO 8 PM MST THURSDAY...
...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM TO 8 PM MST THURSDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
Several disturbances will move through a generally zonal flow over
the upcoming week.  This will bring breezy to windy conditions to
the area and the chance for critical fire weather conditions.  The
first critical day will be tomorrow as winds increase during the
late morning into the afternoon to 20 to 35 mph with gusts to 45
mph. Relative humidities will fall into the upper single digits to
mid teens over the lowlands and possibly on the eastern slopes of
the Sacramento Mountains.  Near critical conditions expected Friday
but winds may fall just short of necessary speeds and duration.
Sunday could be another critical day as models have come back around
to a very windy day with dry air in place ahead of a push of
moisture moving in Sunday night. Winds will continue to push 20 mph
through Tuesday of next week with Monday being the drier of the two
days.

National Weather Service El Paso TX/Santa Teresa NM
708 AM MST Wed Feb 22 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM TO 8 PM MST THURSDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
Fire weather concerns increase starting tomorrow. For today we
will see very warm conditions, with min RH`s in the teens, but
winds will stay below 15 mph. On Thursday an approaching upper
level storm system will bring some high clouds and very strong
winds to the area. With min RH`s in the low to mid teens, most
lowland locations will see Red Flag conditions for several hours
on Thursday afternoon. A Red Flag Warning for Thursday is
currently in effect. Very dry air will punch in behind this storm
system so min RH`s will drop to near 10% in the lowlands for
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but winds will stay a little below
critical levels so Red Flag conditions are NOT expected for those
days. We will see more windy days next week, but by then some
slightly high moisture will have worked into the area so again
right now Red Flag conditions are not expected for the first part
of next week.

155 PM MST Tue Feb 21 2017

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH
THURSDAY EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...
Breezy to windy conditions will be the norm starting Thursday.
Wednesday will see winds generally 10-15 mph with warming
temperatures. Thursday 20-foot winds will increase to 20-30 mph
with gusts over 45 mph possible. Relative humidities over the
lowlands and possibly the eastern slopes of the Sacs will be
falling into the lower to mid teens which will create critical
weather conditions where a fire weather watch is in effect.
Breezy, but less than critical, wind speeds are expected through
the weekend but relative humidities will continue to drop to
around 10 percent. Additional critical fire weather days are
possible early next week.

passes across northern New Mexico. A fire weather watch is in
effect for Thursday.  For Friday through Sunday we will continue
to see dry conditions with min RH`s in the lowlands in the lower
teens, a little higher in the mountains. We will see breezy
conditions each day, but right now it looks like the winds will
