FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
228 PM MST THU DEC 8 2016

.DISCUSSION...
LOW CLOUDS WILL BE ENTRENCHED NEAR AND EAST OF THE RIO GRANDE AGAIN
TONIGHT, WITH MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES TO THE WEST. WINDS WILL DIMINISH
AFTER DARK AS THE COLD FRONT HAS PUSHED WEST OF THE ARIZONA BORDER.
THIS WILL SET UP A COLD NIGHT ACROSS THE AREA WITH HIGHER ELEVATION
LOCATIONS (INCLUDING CLOUDCROFT WHICH IS ABOVE THE CLOUDS CURRENTLY)
AND LOW-LYING COLD DRAINAGES DROPPING INTO THE 10S.

FOR THE WEEK AHEAD, EXPECT SLOWLY MODERATING TEMPERATURES WITH LOW
LEVEL WINDS SHIFTING TO THE WEST AND SOUTHWEST OVER THE WEEKEND BUT
REMAINING FAIRLY LIGHT. MAIN IMPACT FOR FIRE WEATHER WILL BE LIMITED
VENT RATES FRIDAY DUE TO LIGHT WINDS ALOFT AND SHALLOW MIXING. LOWER
ELEVATIONS WILL SEE SOME IMPROVEMENT SATURDAY, WITH MOST AREAS FAIR
OR BETTER BY SUNDAY.
