Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
555 AM MST Sun Feb 18 2018

.DISCUSSION...
The Red Flag Warning has been cancelled due to higher humidity, but
a few hours of elevated fire weather conditions are likely across
northeast New Mexico this afternoon. Very windy conditions are
forecast Monday ahead of a strong cold front. However, moist
westerly flow will prevent humidity from hitting critical threshold.
Chances for wetting precipitation will ramp-up Monday through early
Tuesday morning ahead of and immediately behind the cold front. Snow
accumulation will favor the western and northern high terrain,
especially along the Continental Divide and west-facing slopes of the
Tusas and Jemez Mountains. Much colder air will move in behind the
front, with well below normal temperatures forecast Tuesday and
Tuesday night. Vent rates may be poor Wednesday across the eastern
plains, but should otherwise be a mixed-bag of fair to excellent each
day. Look for a warming trend to begin Wednesday, but temperatures
won`t reach back to near normal until Friday. Breezy to windy
conditions are forecast Friday ahead of a Pacific cold front.
