Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
252 AM MDT Sun Sep 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
The plume of moisture over eastern NM will shift to the east Monday
as an upper disturbance exits the region. A surface front will push
farther west and south today over the eastern plains where isolated
strong to severe storms with large hail and wind gusts to 60 mph are
possible. Scattered storms are also expected over the west today.
Cell motion will be generally from southwest to northeast. Drier and
a little warmer Monday with afternoon westerly breezes. Windier and
continued drying Tuesday to produce some areas of critical fire
weather conditions over the northeast and east central as well as the
west central. Wednesday will remain dry but with less wind. The
latter part of this week still appears unsettled with potential for
precipitation, cooler and windy weather ushering in the fall season.
