Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
456 AM MST Mon Dec 18 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A few showers remain possible today south of Interstate 40 as a slow
moving upper level low pressure system continues to approach New
Mexico. On Tuesday, this system will be exiting the area, and on
Wednesday, zonal flow will return. A strengthening lee side trough
will create breezy conditions across portions of the plains Wednesday
afternoon, but will also result in warming temperatures. Highs will
be 5 to nearly 20 degrees above normal, but this will quickly change
on Thursday. A storm system looks to bring a little snow to the
northern mountains, increasing winds elsewhere, and much colder
temperatures area wide. Below normal temperatures will be on tap
through the weekend.
