.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 830 PM CST FRI JAN 29 2016/

DISCUSSION...

Surface observations in the Guadalupes and Southeast new Mexico
Plains show rapid decoupling w/loss of daytime heating, as well as
RHs climbing above critical thresholds.  Thus, we`ve opted to
cancel the Red Flag Warning there early. In addition, we`ll
update grids based on latest model trends and observations.
Updates out shortly.
