FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE EL PASO TX/SANTA TERESA NM
706 AM MDT THU AUG 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...
WE WILL HAVE JUST ENOUGH MOISTURE TO GIVE US A FEW AFTERNOON
THUNDERSTORMS. DRIER AIR WILL CONTINUE TO PUSH INTO THE REGION
DURING THE DAY. THIS DRIER AIR WILL END THE THREAT OF RAIN FOR THE
NEXT SEVERAL DAYS. WE SHOULD STAY DRY THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO
THE FIRST PART OF NEXT WEEK. UPPER LEVEL HIGH PRESSURE WILL SETTLE
ACROSS THE REGION WHICH SHOULD KEEP OUR WINDS WELL BELOW CRITICAL
LEVELS. MIN RH`S WILL DROP INTO THE MID TEENS IN THE LOWLANDS AND
INTO THE MID 20`S IN MOUNTAINS BY THIS WEEKEND. MOISTURE AND A
SLIGHT CHANCE FOR RAIN WILL RETURN TO THE FORECAST BY THE MIDDLE
OF NEXT WEEK.
