Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
606 AM MST Wed Dec 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A weak backdoor cold front will move down the Eastern Plains today
and help to improve vent rates there, but ventilation will otherwise
be poor. Much colder air will move in behind a stronger cold front
Thursday, with decent wetting precipitation potential over the
Northern Mountains. Vent rates will improve most areas Thursday with
the frontal passage. Look for a warm-up Friday into Saturday ahead
of the next cold front. Vent rates will be poor most areas on Friday,
but will improve some Saturday ahead of the cold front. Much colder
air will move in behind the front late Sunday, which will be
accompanied by chances for wetting precipitation.
