Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
644 AM MDT Tue Jun 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Drier air and stronger westerly breezes will impact the western
zones of New Mexico today along with warmer temperatures. In the
plains the winds will be more south southwesterly, turning a bit
gusty by late afternoon. A stray storm or two will be possible in
the west central mountains, but the best prospects for isolated to
scattered storms will be along and just east of the central mountain
chain this afternoon and evening. A drier, warm to hot, and unstable
period is then expected for Wednesday and Thursday. Breezy to
locally windy conditions will develop both days, and humidity will
also plummet below 10 percent. A back door cold front is still
forecast to enter the eastern plains of New Mexico Thursday night and
Friday morning. This will briefly shift the winds and drop
temperatures down a few degrees while producing a few storms along
and east of the Sangre de Cristos Friday afternoon.
