Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
604 AM MST Sun Dec 10 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Extremely dry conditions with above normal temperatures and mostly
poor vent rates will prevail through Wednesday under a light wind
regime as high pressure continues to dominate over the Great Basin,
Desert Southwest and Southern Rockies. A cold front is still on
track to push through Wednesday, providing more cooling to the
Eastern Plains than much of western New Mexico. Despite the cooling,
temperatures will still be near to slightly above normal across the
Eastern Plains going into Thursday. Vent rates may improve by the end
of the work week and into the weekend as westerly winds increase.
