Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
352 AM MDT Sun May 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Northwest flow with a couple of embedded disturbances combined with
strengthening return flow of low level moisture will produce
increasing convection central and east today through Tuesday.
Isolated and potentially drier convection possible west as
northwest flow will help to mix out any moisture which does make it
towards the Continental Divide. Vent rates today and Monday good to
excellent with the exception of some fair to poor rates east on
Monday. High temperatures through Tuesday remaining near to below
average. Drier, windier and warmer mid to late week with widespread
high Haines and potential for critical fire weather conditions as
high temperatures reach normal values for most locales.
