FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
125 PM MST TUE FEB 9 2016

.DISCUSSION...
A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL DOMINATE OUR WEATHER THROUGH THE
END OF THE WEEK. DRY AND WARMER THAN NORMAL CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN
IN PLACE UNDER MOSTLY CLEAR SKIES. HIGH LEVEL CLOUDS WILL BE ON
THE INCREASE OVER THE WEEKEND BUT WETTING PRECIP WILL NOT BE AN
ISSUE. WHILE MIN RH VALUES WILL FALL TO CRITICAL LEVELS EACH
AFTERNOON WINDS WILL REMAIN LIGHT ACROSS THE REGION. VENT RATES
WILL CONTINUE TO SUFFER DUE TO LOW AFTERNOON MIXING HEIGHTS AND
WEAK TRANSPORT WIND SPEEDS.
