Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
613 AM MDT Thu Jun 29 2017

...HOT, DRY, BREEZY, AND UNSTABLE PATTERN CONTINUES TODAY...

.DISCUSSION...
Mostly poor humidity recovery to start the day, with fair to good
recoveries across the Eastern Plains closer to the TX border. A dry
air intrusion continues across the forecast area today, with many
hours of single digit humidity forecast along with hot and unstable
conditions. A hot, dry and unstable regime will continue across
western and central New Mexico Friday with weaker winds, while a
backdoor cold front slides down the Eastern Plains and hits the
Central Mountain Chain. Much cooler temperatures and increased
humidity can be expected behind the front, which will advance west
through the Central Mountain Chain Friday night to near the Arizona
border by Saturday morning. Chances for wetting rain will ramp-up
central and east this weekend thanks to moisture from the backdoor
front. A drying and warming trend will be in play from Monday through
the middle of next week as a ridge of high pressure strengthens over
the Four Corners.
