FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR WEST TEXAS/SOUTHEASTERN NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MIDLAND/ODESSA TX
403 AM CDT SUN OCT 26 2014

.DISCUSSION...

WELL ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND SOUTHWEST WINDS THE NEXT TWO DAYS
WILL DECREASE MIN RH VALUES...THOUGH THEY ARE STILL EXPECTED TO REMAIN
ABOVE 20 PERCENT. LATE MONDAY NIGHT/EARLY TUESDAY A COLD FRONT WILL MOVE
THROUGH THE AREA WHICH WILL INTRODUCE HIGHER RH AS WELL AS MUCH COOLER
TEMPERATURES IN THE 60S AND 70S TUESDAY.  THERE MAY ALSO BE GUSTY WINDS
ACCOMPANYING THE FRONT...BUT WITH INCREASING RH AND DROPPING
TEMPERATURES...EXPECT THE WINDS TO BE OF LITTLE CONSEQUENCE. TEMPERATURES
WILL REMAIN IN THE 70S THROUGH THE END OF NEXT WEEK...AND WHILE THERE
MAY BE SOME SHOWERS OVER THE LOWER TRANS PECOS WESTWARD TOWARD THE DAVIS
MOUNTAINS MIDWEEK...CONFIDENCE IN MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION IS LOW.
