Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
304 PM MDT Sun Apr 23 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING FOR NORTHWEST HIGHLANDS AND PLATEAU TO 8 PM MDT
THIS EVENING DUE TO STRONG WINDS...LOW HUMIDITY AND AN UNSTABLE
ATMOSPHERE...

...RED FLAG WARNING FOR NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO FROM 10 AM
TO 9 PM MDT MONDAY DUE TO STRONG WINDS...VERY LOW HUMIDITY AND AN
UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...

.DISCUSSION...
Breezy to windy conditions are currently being observed with
critical humidity also being occurring in northwestern New Mexico
this afternoon. Into tonight, windy conditions will persist over
peaks and ridge tops, especially along the Sangre de Cristos. Mild
overnight temperatures and only fair humidity recoveries are forecast
tonight. Into Monday, winds will remain strong and gusty over the
higher peaks with the higher speeds gradually expanding into most
remaining lower elevation areas by late afternoon. Humidity will
plummet to less than 10 percent over all zones except the northern
mountains. Thus, widespread critical fire weather is expected Monday.
Windy conditions will impact much of the forecast area again
Tuesday, but especially along and south of I-40. A few degrees of
cooling and some batches of precipitation could keep humidity mostly
above critical thresholds Tuesday. A drier, cooler pattern will then
prevail on Wednesday, but breezy to windy conditions will persist.
