Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
612 AM MDT Sat Apr 22 2017

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH FOR NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO BELOW
SNOWPACK DUE TO STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS...VERY LOW HUMIDITY AND AN
UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...

.DISCUSSION...
Warm, dry and unstable conditions will prevail west of the
Continental Divide today, with cooler and more moist conditions east
behind a backdoor cold front. Look for a warm-up Sunday, with an hour
or two of critical fire weather conditions near the Arizona border by
afternoon. Monday is looking like a widespread critical fire weather
day, with several hours of single digit humidity, strong winds and an
unstable atmosphere. Critical fire weather conditions will continue
into Tuesday across south central and east central portions of the
area, while clouds and humidity increase across northwest New Mexico.
A significant trend change is coming late next week and into next
weekend with a storm system that will bring increasing chances for
wetting precipitation and much cooler temperatures.
