URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
250 PM MDT Wed Mar 29 2017

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FOR THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY
AND PORTIONS OF THE EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND
LOW HUMIDITY...

.As a low pressure system dives southeast toward New Mexico on
Friday, winds aloft will strengthen with a pronounced dry slot
accompanying. Deep atmospheric mixing will bring the stronger
winds and low humidity down to the surface Friday afternoon,
leading to critical fire weather conditions. Some uncertainties
still exist in the east central plains with regards to fuel
moisture due to recent rainfall, and this could mitigate the
critical fire weather hazard there.
