FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
633 AM MDT THU MAY 5 2016

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH FRIDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY EARLY EVENING
FOR THE WEST CENTRAL HIGHLANDS...MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY AND
SANDIA...MANZANO AND GALLINAS MOUNTAINS...

.DISCUSSION...
THE WARMING TREND CONTINUES TODAY WITH THE HOTTEST DAY SO FAR
THIS YEAR FORECAST ACROSS A MAJORITY OF THE AREA. MOISTURE
INCREASING ACROSS WESTERN NEW MEXICO TODAY WILL BE SUFFICIENT TO
SPARK LATE DAY SHOWERS AND STORMS. HOWEVER...DRY LIGHTNING WITH
STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS IS MORE LIKELY THAN WETTING PRECIPITATION.
THIS COULD BECOME PROBLEMATIC IF ANY LIGHTNING STARTS ARE ABLE TO
HOLD OVER GOING INTO FRIDAY WHEN CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS
ARE FORECAST WITH HAINES VALUES OF 6. SATURDAY IS STILL LOOKING
LIKE A CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER DAY ACROSS THE EASTERN PLAINS. COOLER
AIR WILL MOVE EAST ACROSS THE AREA THIS WEEKEND AND PUT AN END TO
CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS BY SUNDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL
REBOUND BACK TO NEAR NORMAL BY THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
