Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
651 AM MST Tue Feb 28 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 5 PM TODAY FOR THE EAST
CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...
Potent upper level trough and attendant cold front to cross the
area today delivering major wind impacts for parts of central
and all of eastern New Mexico. Concern for critical fire weather
conditions for parts of the east central plains given magnitude
of the wind, sustained 35 to 45 mph with gusts topping 60 mph at
times, combined with above average temperatures and dry, unstable
conditions. Accumulating snow will continue for the higher elevations
of northern New Mexico but precipitation coverage will quickly
diminish late today into early evening as drier air overspreads the
area behind the frontal system.  Much drier and warmer weather will
return for the second half of the week. Only concern for poor
ventilation will be Thursday and possibly into Friday across the
northern and western valleys.
