Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
441 AM MST Thu Nov 14 2019

.DISCUSSION...
The eastern plains will see cooler temperatures with highs in the
50s. Winds will be light with poor ventilation. Despite increasing
cloud cover, temperatures rise Friday and Saturday over eastern New
Mexico while staying consistent over western New Mexico. A high
pressure ridge moves over New Mexico during this time with breezy
southerly winds through the eastern plains each afternoon. A quick
moving weather disturbance will clip northern and eastern New Mexico
Saturday night into Sunday morning providing a fleeting chance for a
wintry mix of precipitation over the northern mountains and adjacent
northeastern plains. Another drop in temperatures across eastern New
Mexico will follow behind an associated backdoor cold front Sunday.
Temperatures rise yet again for the early part of next week.
