Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
433 AM MDT Mon Aug 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An active monsoon period most of this week, with some day to
day variations due to a frontal boundary impacting the east
Tuesday/Tuesday night and an upper wave passing over northern New
Mexico Wednesday through Thursday. The Great Basin high to regain
dominance Friday and over the weekend, allowing the west to dry out
some with fewer storms, while the east remains susceptible to
northwest flow aloft and frontal boundary passages, one of which
could occur next Sunday night. Vent rates a mix of poor to good or
excellent this week depending on location. High temperatures to
be below average through Friday with lows above normal.
