Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
633 AM MDT Sat Apr 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A reinforcing shot of cold air is moving down the plains this morning
changing rain into snow. Snow will persist through much of the day
across the plains. Snow, or a mix of rain and snow, will impact the
Rio Grande Valley as well, while lesser activity is expected across
western NM. Temperatures today will be 20 to 40 degrees below normal
areawide, and most areas tonight will experience a freeze or a hard
freeze. A slow warmup will begin on Sunday and continue through
Tuesday, but temperatures will largely remain below normal under
northwest flow aloft. Another front on Tuesday night and Wednesday
will drop temperatures several degrees across the east, but it will
also increase precipitation chances across northeast New Mexico
again. By the end of the work week, temperatures should climb to at
or just above normal readings.
