FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
729 AM MDT SAT APR 30 2016

.DISCUSSION...
DESPITE MODEST WARMING TODAY...COOL AND UNSETTLED WEATHER WILL
PERSIST THROUGH MIDWEEK. SPOTTY SHOWERS THIS MORNING WILL GIVE WAY
TO MORE WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. A POWERFUL BACK DOOR FRONT WILL BLAST THROUGH THE EASTERN
PLAINS TONIGHT WITH STRONG GAP WINDS DEVELOPING IN THE CENTRAL
VALLEY...ESPECIALLY IN THE ALBUQUERQUE METRO AREA. MUCH COLDER ON
SUNDAY WITH WETTING RAIN MOST ZONES. RESIDUAL MOISTURE AND DAYTIME
HEATING WILL SUPPORT SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MONDAY AND
TUESDAY. LATE WEEK WARMING AND DRYING AHEAD OF A DEVELOPING SYSTEM
COULD RESULT IN SOME AREAS OF CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER...PERHAPS AS
EARLY AS THURSDAY AND MORE LIKELY ON FRIDAY ACROSS WESTERN AND
SOUTH CENTRAL ZONES. EXTENDED MODELS INDICATE ANOTHER ROUND OF
COOLER TEMPERATURES WITH WETTING PRECIPITATION IS POSSIBLE BY NEXT
WEEKEND.
