Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
607 AM MDT Sat Aug 19 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Monsoon moisture will make a quick return to the area over the next
24 to 36 hours with a significant increase in shower and thunderstorm
coverage. Southerly flow between a weak low pressure system offshore
southern California and high pressure aloft over Texas will draw
sub-tropical moisture northward. Locally heavy rainfall can be
expected from slow-moving storms, especially Sunday and Sunday night.
The focus for the most widespread thunderstorm rains will be along
the Rio Grande Valley corridor, neighboring central mountain chain
and areas farther east. An active monsoon period will persist through
much of next week with another backdoor cold front boosting coverage
by Wednesday and Thursday.
