FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WEST TEXAS/SOUTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
454 AM CDT SAT SEP 20 2014

.DISCUSSION...
VERY MOIST CONDITIONS CONTINUE AND A WEAK DISTURBANCE REMAIN OVER THE
AREA. EASTERLY WINDS WILL ALSO HELP TO HOLD MOISTURE AND KEEP
TEMPERATURES UNSEASONABLY COOL. THE COOL TEMPERATURES WILL PREVENT
VENTILATION FROM CLIMBING ANY HIGHER THAN FAIR. THE CHANCE OF RAIN WILL
SLOWLY END BY TUESDAY.
