Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
241 PM MDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FOR THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY AND
PORTIONS OF EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

An active spring weather pattern will continue throughout the
forecast period with bouts of stronger winds, large temperature
swings, and occasional precipitation. An abrupt warm-up is expected
Thursday while breezy to windy conditions develop. Humidity will drop
near critical values in some spotty locations over the western
highlands Thursday afternoon. On Friday winds strengthen more,
especially over the central to eastern zones with low humidity also
developing in the Middle Rio Grande valley and portions of the east
central plains. This could lead to a few hours of critical fire
weather conditions. Temperatures will fall below normal through the
weekend while winds shift in direction, but speeds should remain
light to moderate. Precipitation will also develop this weekend,
mostly in the western and northern zones, but primarily focused along
and near the Colorado-New Mexico border. Breezy to windy conditions
return into Monday and Tuesday of next week.
