FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
329 PM MST TUE DEC 16 2014

.DISCUSSION...
MOSTLY POOR VENTILATION TODAY DUE TO SIGNIFICANT CLOUDINESS...
BUT SOME IMPROVEMENT IS FORECAST WEDNESDAY ACROSS CENTRAL AND
SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE AREA WHERE STRONGER WINDS WILL MOVE
ACROSS. OTHERWISE...A COMPLEX WEATHER PATTERN HAS SET UP FOR
THE REMAINDER OF THE WORK-WEEK...WITH A TOTAL OF THREE
DISTURBANCES FORECAST TO IMPACT THE REGION. THE FIRST DISTURBANCE
WILL MOVE ACROSS NEW MEXICO WEDNESDAY BRINGING A ROUND OF WETTING
PRECIPITATION...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE WESTERN MOUNTAINS/HIGHLANDS
AND WEST-FACING SLOPES OF THE CENTRAL MOUNTAIN CHAIN. DISTURBANCE
NUMBER TWO WILL KEEP CHANCES FOR WETTING PRECIPITATION GOING INTO
WEDNESDAY NIGHT...ESPECIALLY OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN AND ALONG
WEST-FACING SLOPES. THE FINAL DISTURBANCE WILL PUSH THROUGH
THURSDAY NIGHT...KEEPING CHANCES FOR WETTING PRECIPITATION GOING
BUT FAVORING SOUTHERN PORTIONS OF THE STATE. SATURDAY LOOKS TO BE
A POOR VENTILATION DAY AND THAT COULD EXTEND INTO SUNDAY DEPENDING
ON ANOTHER DEVELOPING DISTURBANCE. A WARMING AND DRYING TREND
IS FORECAST FOR EARLY NEXT WEEK.
