Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
537 AM MST Wed Nov 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Large upper level high pressure over northwest MX and southern CA
will strengthen and expand eastward across NM today through Thursday.
Winds will be light and terrain-driven today and Thursday given light
winds aloft and a weak surface pressure gradient. Highs today will be
near to above normal, and highs Thursday will be above normal. A
surface trough in northeast NM and West TX Friday will result in west
northwest winds 15 to 25 mph in the eastern plains, and a few
locations in east central NM may have a couple of hours with near
critical fire weather conditions. A backdoor cold front will bring
cooler conditions and near normal temperatures to the eastern plains
Saturday, while the rest of NM remains above normal. High pressure
aloft will move over NM Sunday with light winds and above normal
temperatures. A developing surface low to the northeast of NM Monday
will produce breezy to locally windy conditions across much of the
state with critical fire weather conditions possible in the eastern
plains during the afternoon hours.
