Low pressure developing across the central Rockies Wednesday will cause winds to increase, which will result in a renewed fire threat from southern Arizona to western Texas. The flow of winds around low pressure will also drag in a very dry air mass with relative humidities falling below 20%, while wind gusts top 30 mph. At the same time, temperatures will be quite warm with highs ranging from the low 70s in southern New Mexico to the low 80s in southwestern Texas. This will increase the threat of quickly spreading fires. Later in the day, the fire threat will shift into far western Oklahoma as dry, gusty breezes arrive from the west.
