Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR West Texas/Southeast New Mexico
Nantional Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
236 PM CDT Thu Mar 30 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IS IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING
AND FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING FOR THE GUADALUPE MOUNTAINS
FOR LOW HUMIDITY, WINDS GREATER THAN 20 MPH, AND VERY HIGH FIRE DANGER...

RED FLAG WARNING IS IN EFFECT FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING FOR
SOUTHEAST NEW MEXICO, THE NORTHWESTERN PERMIAN BASIN, UPPER TRANS PECOS,
DAVIS MOUNTAINS, AND MARFA PLATEAU FOR LOW HUMIDITY, WINDS GREATER THAN
20 MPH, AND VERY HIGH TO EXTREME FIRE DANGER...

.DISCUSSION...
Conditions are coming together for potentially moderate high end
critical fire weather Friday afternoon across the west. Other than
in the mtns the strongest winds will extend from Van Horn into the Upper
Trans Pecos and SE NM where a corridor of 25-35 mph sustained winds are
possible. Along with the winds the magnitude of the dry air is impressive,
a large area of 3% RH is possible. There is some concern about how much
fuels will rebound to the dry side. Currently ERCs are thought to be below
the 90th percentile, but probably above 75th and along the forecast weather
there is moderate significant fire potential.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR West Texas/Southeast New Mexico
Nantional Weather Service Midland/Odessa TX
407 AM CDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A cold front will lessen the fire weather threat today for most areas
except the Big Bend and lower Trans Pecos which could see low end
critical fire weather conditions. Warmer and drier conditions are
expected Thursday and Friday but wind speeds will be too low for Red
Flag conditions except perhaps in Eddy County and the Guadalupe
Mountains. Overnight recovery will be fair to good tonight, and poor
to fair tomorrow night.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR West Texas/Southeast New Mexico

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 9 PM CDT
THIS EVENING FOR WARM, WINDY AND DRY CONDITIONS ALONG AND WEST OF
A SEMINOLE TO FORT STOCKTON LINE ...

.DISCUSSION...

A Red Flag Warning has been issued as windy, warm and dry conditions
are expected over much of the forecast area ahead of an upper level
storm system.  RHs will stay above 15% in the Guadalupe and Davis
Mountains, so they have not been included in the warning.  There
could be isolated lightning strikes over the warning area, along
with enhanced local wind gusts too.  Recovery will be poor tonight
as 20 foot winds remain from the west, followed by possible critical
conditions over the big Bend region, Stockton Plateau and Lower
Trans Pecos Wednesday afternoon.  RHs will stay above 15 percent
over the rest of the forecast area.  After a brief break Thursday,
