FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
647 AM MDT MON SEP 1 2014

.DISCUSSION...
HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN U.S. WILL CONTINUE TO KEEP
OUR AREA WARM AND DRY AIR UNDER CLEAR TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES. THIS
SHOULD CONTINUE AT LEAST THROUGH MID WEEK. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL
CONTINUE ABOVE NORMAL UNTIL THE LATTER PART OF THE WEEK. AFTER
WEDNESDAY THE UPPER RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE SHOULD SHIFT MORE TO THE
EAST AND ALLOW SOME SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE TO BEGIN TO RETURN INTO OUR
AREA. THIS IN TURN SHOULD BRING MORE CLOUDINESS MAINLY IN THE
AFTERNOONS...AND ALSO BRING INCREASING CHANCES FOR AFTERNOON AND
EVENING STORMS ACROSS SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO AND FAR WEST
TEXAS...ESPECIALLY FOR THE MOUNTAINS.
