National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
655 AM MDT Wed May 24 2017

CORRECTED TIMING IN SECOND HEADLINE

CENTRAL MOUNTAINS EASTWARD TO THE TEXAS BORDER AND WESTWARD TO
THE ARIZONA BORDER, AS WELL AS FOR THE NORTHWEST PLATEAU, DUE TO

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH FRIDAY LATE MORNING UNTIL MID EVENING FROM
THE CENTRAL MOUNTAINS EASTWARD TO THE TEXAS BORDER AND WESTWARD TO
THE ARIZONA BORDER DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES...

.Winds will strengthen Thursday, then weaken some while remaining
strong Friday, as an upper level trough passes north of New
Mexico. Very low humidities, above normal temperatures, an
unstable atmosphere and low soil moisture will combine with a
heavy layer of dead fuel from previous growing seasons to produce
hazardous fire weather conditions. Winds will weaken some Thursday
night, but many areas will experience poor humidity recovery.
