Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
249 PM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH EARLY EVENING FOR THE MIDDLE
RIO GRANDE VALLEY OF NEW MEXICO DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW
HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...A very active weather pattern will continue impacting
NM for at least the next 7 days. The potent storm system that dumped
heavy snowfall over the northern high terrain will continue moving
east into the Great Plains. Strong winds will taper off over eastern
NM tonight. A hard freeze is likely over many areas of northern NM
that haven`t seen a freeze in a while. Winds will come around to the
southwest Saturday and generate marginal critical fire weather for
portions of central NM and the Rio Grande Valley. The next wave will
shift across northern NM Saturday night and create some light snow
for the high terrain. Windy conditions will continue into Sunday with
the focus for a more solid area of critical fire weather over the
southeastern plains. More windy, dry, and warm conditions will occur
Monday with critical fire weather conditions possible over parts of
NM. The next system will shift into the state Tuesday and Wednesday
with cooler temperatures, scattered rain and snow showers, wind, and
higher humidity. Yet another significant storm system is on the
horizon for Thursday and Friday.
