FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WEST TEXAS/SOUTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
326 AM CST SAT FEB 6 2016

.DISCUSSION...
THE DRYING/WARMING TREND CONTINUES TODAY WITH MIN RH/S DROPPING TO
NEAR 20 PERCENT ACROSS THE PERMIAN BASIN AND 10-15 PERCENT ELSEWHERE.
20 FOOT WINDS WILL REMAIN BELOW 20 MPH FOR MOST AREAS HOWEVER PORTIONS
OF THE GUADALUPE MOUNTAINS MAY SEE WINDS REACH 20 MPH FOR A FEW HOURS
THIS AFTERNOON. DRY CONDITIONS CONTINUE THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK WITH
FAIRLY LIGHT WINDS EXPECTED. THIS WILL PREVENT CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER
CONDITIONS FROM DEVELOPING AND MAY ALLOW FOR FAVORABLE PRESCRIBED
BURN CONDITIONS. OVERNIGHT RECOVERY WILL BE FAIR TO GOOD.
