Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
533 AM MDT Sun Oct 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
The weather will turn more tranquil today with lighter winds, dry
conditions, and just a few high clouds. Temperatures will reach close
to seasonal normals this afternoon while humidity falls to 10 to 20
percent, being driest in central to western New Mexico. Temperatures
will then rise above normal on Monday, followed by a cold front that
will bring gusty east and northeast winds to portions of central and
eastern New Mexico late Monday into Monday night. This front will
also set temperature readings back below normal in eastern New Mexico
into Tuesday. Dry conditions will persist through mid week with no
critical fire weather conditions expected, however poor smoke
dispersion and inefficient ventilation could prove problematic for
some prescribed burning. A significant cold front will then arrive
Thursday and Friday.
