Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
604 AM MDT Sun Sep 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...Very dry air across western NM will advance eastward
toward the TX state line through late today. Minimum humidity values
will fall into the 10-15% range from the Rio Grande Valley westward
however winds will remain subcritical. Moisture will surge back into
eastern NM this evening with showers and storms possible again. The
west will remain very dry tonight and the coldest temperatures of the
season are expected. Monday will be a repeat for western NM while
the east stays active with more showers and storms. A back door cold
front will then surge west through the Rio Grande Valley and onto the
Continental Divide Monday night. This will set the stage for several
days with widespread showers and storms, some of which may produce
locally heavy rainfall. Temperatures will average 5 to 10 degrees
below normal statewide. Ventilation in this pattern is expected to
be poor from Tuesday through at least Thursday.
