Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
607 AM MDT Tue Oct 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...High pressure aloft over northern Mexico will continue
to provide mostly sunny skies, warm temperatures, very low humidity,
and overall light winds today. Ventilation will remain poor today
most areas with perhaps some fair conditions by late afternoon. High
clouds will increase through tonight and especially Wednesday ahead
of a low pressure system approaching from the Pacific. Temperatures
will remain warm Wednesday with low humidity, generally light winds,
and slightly better ventilation. Moisture will increase Thursday and
increase the chance for showers and storms. Patchy wetting rainfall
is possible around the high terrain of central New Mexico. Stronger
winds will develop Friday ahead of a more significant upper level low
pressure system arriving Saturday. Temperatures will trend cooler
over the weekend with more wind expected Saturday. A few rain and
high terrain snow showers are possible across the northern mountains.
