   ...CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER AREA FOR PORTIONS OF THE SOUTHERN HIGH
   PLAINS...

   Elevated to critical fire weather conditions are likely across much
   of the southern High Plains on D2/Sun.  The critical area highlights
   locations where 20+ mph are expected in conjunction with
   single-digit to 15% RH values.  Farther south into areas of west
   Texas (near the Pecos River Valley), locally critical fire weather
   conditions are possible although fuels still appear to be
   unfavorable for fire spread except for on a localized basis.  This
   region will continue to be monitored in coming days as fuels
   continue to dry.

   ...Synopsis...
   Conditions will be similar on Sunday as those on Saturday across the
   southern High Plains. A shortwave trough will traverse the southern
   Rockies and gusty downslope west/southwest surface winds will
   develop. Sustained wind speeds of 15-25 mph with higher gusts are
   expected, though wind speeds will be a bit lower than on Saturday as
   the surface pressure gradient is weaker. RH values will fall into
   the upper single digits to upper teens. Critical conditions are
   forecast again across parts of east-central NM into the TX South
   Plains where the best overlap of critical meteorological conditions
   and dry fuels is expected. A larger area of more borderline
   conditions is expected from southeast CO into western and
   southwestern TX.
