Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
217 PM MDT Fri May 26 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING LATE THIS MORNING UNTIL MID EVENING FROM THE
CENTRAL MOUNTAINS EASTWARD TO THE TEXAS BORDER AND WESTWARD TO THE
ARIZONA BORDER DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITIES...

.DISCUSSION...
Windy conditions with critical conditions persist into this evening
before diminishing, but winds may again will remain gusty over the
higher terrain at times tonight. Poor overnight humidity recoveries
will be widespread again tonight. A change to cooler temperatures and
higher humidities begins by Saturday night as a surface boundary
pushes down the eastern plains, increasing moisture and chances for
convection. The moisture will spread progressively westward, with
chances for showers and storms becoming more widespread Sunday and
early next week. High temperatures cool below average as well.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms may persist through much of next
week with high temperatures near to below average.
