Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
608 AM MST Mon Dec 11 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An extremely dry atmosphere continues across the area. Today will be
similar overall to yesterday, with mostly light winds and poor vent
rates. A weak backdoor front will push down the Eastern Plains and
provide a few degrees of cooling going into Tuesday, however daytime
temperatures will persist above normal with poor vent rates. A
stronger cold front is forecast to push through Thursday bringing
some cooling and increased moisture, but with little to no chance for
wetting precipitation. Look for the cool down to be short-lived with
a warming trend going into next weekend. Vent rates should trend up
as well from Friday into the weekend, especially across the Eastern
Plains, as the westerlies increase across the region.
