DISCUSSION
 
 
NO CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ANTICIPATED THROUGH THE UPCOMING  
WEEKEND. OVERNIGHT HUMIDITY RECOVERIES WILL GENERALLY BE GOOD TO  
EXCELLENT, BUT THERE WILL BE ONLY FAIR RECOVERIES FAR NORTHWEST NEW  
MEXICO. LOCALLY FAIR TO POOR VENTILATION CENTRAL AND EAST TUESDAY,  
WITH SOME IMPROVEMENT WEDNESDAY, THEN AREAS OF POOR RATES FORECAST  
FOR THE WEST AND NORTH THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL  
BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD AS THE WEEK PROGRESSES, AS SURFACE  
FRONTS OR OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES PUSH MOISTURE GRADUALLY WESTWARD. SLOWER  
AND MORE ERRATIC MOTION IS EXPECTED TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY WHICH COULD  
LEAD TO HEAVIER RAINFALL. THE FAR NORTHWEST WILL REMAIN DRIER THAN  
THE REMAINDER OF THE FORECAST AREA. HIGH TEMPERATURES WILL BE WITHIN  
A FEW DEGREES OF AVERAGE FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK.
