Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
614 AM MDT Thu Aug 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Good to excellent humidity recovery this morning across eastern New
Mexico, where low level moisture and some saturated soils reside.
This moisture will fuel wetting storms later today across the east,
but will be limited in coverage. Elsewhere across central and western
New Mexico, dry conditions will persist with daytime temperatures
generally near normal. High pressure will strengthen over the state
Friday, which will be the warmest day of the next seven. Wetting
storms, if any, look to be confined to south central and southeast
portions of the state Friday. A moistening and cooling trend is in
play for the weekend and into early next week as moisture streams
north from Mexico and results in an significant uptick in wetting
storms over much of the region.
