Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
603 AM MDT Mon Jun 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Excellent humidity recovery has been observed over most of northern
and central New Mexico early this morning. The exception is in the
far northwester plateau where recovery has been more modest. An
active thunderstorm pattern will develop again today, although the
coverage will likely not be quite as widespread as yesterday. Storms
will initiate over the high terrain of the Continental Divide and the
central mountain chain of New Mexico before drifting south
southeastward into adjacent central valleys. A few storms will also
be possible in the plains, and some storms may turn strong to severe
with heavy downpours and gusty winds. Into Tuesday, notably less
storms are forecast as drier air slowly works in from the west. The
dry air will fully push into New Mexico on Wednesday and Thursday,
eliminating storm potential with drier, warmer, and stronger westerly
breezes.
