Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
616 AM MDT Fri Sep 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...An upper level low approaching NM from the west will
generate widespread windy conditions today. Temperatures will trend
slightly cooler today but still remain above normal for central and
eastern NM. Humidities are expected to stay above critical values
across the west. Meanwhile, an extended period of rain and storms
will begin today over the eastern plains and continue through late
Saturday night. Precipitation amounts between 2 and 5 inches are
possible. A potent dry slot will shift across central and western NM
Sunday and Monday with more breezy conditions. A back door cold front
is then expected to move southwest through the state Monday night
and recharge moisture to the Continental Divide. A second upper level
low will attempt to take shape and bring showers and storms over the
entire state Tuesday through Thursday. Temperatures will trend much
cooler across NM through next week.
