Day 1 Fire Weather Outlook

Fire weather concerns will remain limited today across the country.
Latest surface observations show persistent dry conditions across
the Southwest into the southern High Plains where dewpoints are in
the low to mid teens. This dry air mass will remain in place amid a
mean (albeit weak) westerly flow regime. Recent guidance suggests
widespread RH reductions into the low teens (and perhaps single
digits) are likely across eastern NM into western TX; however,
recent RAP/HRRR runs have initialized with a slight dry-bias across
the Southwest that may be influencing these drier forecasts.
Furthermore, increasing cloud cover around peak heating may modulate
RH reductions to some degree. Areas of elevated conditions are
possible in the immediate lee of more prominent terrain features
across central NM to southwest TX, but the aforementioned forecast
concerns, combined with generally weak gradient winds and modest
fuel status, preclude fire weather highlights.
