Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
519 AM MDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...Breezy to windy conditions will develop today as
stronger winds aloft mix down to the surface. Occasional gusts
of 35 to 45 mph will be most common in the highlands of northwestern
and northeastern New Mexico today. Periodic gusts will also be
observed through the overnight along the higher ridge tops. Brisk
conditions will then be observed on Saturday as a cold front sweeps
into New Mexico with breezy to windy conditions stretching from the
northwest corner of the state into the central highlands. More
tranquil weather is then expected on Sunday with lighter winds.
Temperatures will then rebound quickly on Monday, but a cold front
will abruptly set readings back below normal in eastern New Mexico on
Tuesday. Conditions will remain dry into early next week, but no
critical fire weather is expected.
