Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
421 AM MST Mon Jan 22 2018

.DISCUSSION...
A drier weather pattern is forecast over the next few days.
Temperatures will remain a few to several degrees below normal today,
but readings will be gradually warming back above average by mid
week with lower relative humidity. A few locations in eastern New
Mexico will observe breezy to windy conditions on Wednesday with
localized critical fire weather due to the dry conditions and low
humidity. Then on Thursday, northeastern New Mexico is expected to
observe an expansion of these critical fire weather conditions as
more widespread windy conditions are forecast. Even stronger winds
are forecast on Friday, but cooler temperatures and higher humidity
will arrive and limit the critical fire weather threat. Aside from a
few spotty showers over the far northern mountains of New Mexico
early Friday through Friday night, dry conditions are forecast
through the upcoming week.
