Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
625 AM MDT Sat Oct 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Brisk conditions are expected today as a cold front sweeps into New
Mexico. Breezy to windy conditions will stretch from the northwest
corner of the state into the central highlands with gusts
occasionally reaching 30 to 45 mph. Dry conditions are expected today
with low humidity, but the cooler than normal temperatures should
limit fire danger. The weather will then turn tranquil on Sunday
with lighter winds while dry conditions prevail. Temperatures will
then rise above normal by Monday, but a cold front will abruptly set
readings back below normal in eastern New Mexico on Tuesday.
Dry conditions will persist through early next week, but no critical
fire weather is expected.
