Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
422 AM MST Tue Jan 23 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures will remain near to slightly below normal today, but
readings will be gradually warming back above average by mid week
with lower relative humidity. Portions of eastern New Mexico will
observe breezy to windy conditions on Wednesday with localized
critical fire weather due to the dry conditions and low humidity. By
Thursday, northeastern New Mexico is expected to observe more
widespread windy conditions, leading to more prolonged critical fire
weather conditions there. Winds are forecast to strengthen more on
Friday. While cooler temperatures will begin seeping into New Mexico
on Friday, a few hours of critical fire weather will still threaten
eastern portions of the state. Only a few spotty showers are expected
over the far northern mountains of New Mexico early Friday through
Friday night.
