   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHERN NEW MEXICO
   INTO WEST TEXAS...

   ...Synopsis...
   An upper trough is expected to move from the Four Corners/Southwest
   into the southern Plains on Tuesday, as a cold front sweeps through
   much of the central Plains. Dry westerly flow will result in another
   day of elevated to critical conditions across portions of New Mexico
   into West Texas. 

   ...New Mexico and adjacent portions of southeast Arizona and west
   Texas...
   While temperatures may be somewhat cooler compared to Monday, dry,
   warm, and windy conditions are expected to persist across portions
   of NM and adjacent portions of southeast AZ and west TX. Minimum RH
   values of 8-15% combined with sustained westerly winds of 20-30 MPH
   will result in critical fire weather conditions across primarily
   southern New Mexico into West Texas. Surrounding the critical area,
   a broad area of elevated conditions is expected, with the
   progression of the cold front defining the northern extent of
   elevated wind/RH.
