Day 2 Fire Weather Outlook
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
0126 AM CST Thu Feb 22 2018

Valid 231200Z - 241200Z

...Synopsis...
The western upper trough centered over the Great Basin will track
eastward to the southern/central Rockies on Friday. As heights fall,
deep layer southwesterly flow will increase and a weak surface
trough will develop across the southern High Plains. This will lead
to breezy southwest surface winds across much of NM. RH values also
will fall into the 15-25 percent range. This will result in elevated
fire weather potential across the eastern NM Plains into parts of
far southeast CO and southwestern TX. While gusty winds and low RH
will also exist across western and central NM, fuel conditions are
less favorable than further east, limiting fire weather concerns.
