Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
532 AM MDT Sun Apr 22 2018

.DISCUSSION...The pattern for the next 7 days highlights a lack of
critical fire weather conditions for the entire area. Temperatures
today will trend several degrees warmer than Saturday with light
winds and minimum humidity of 10 to 15% over the west and 15 to 20%
over the east. Monday will trend even warmer with high temperatures
5 to 10 degrees above normal with low humidity. West winds will be
breezier Monday however speeds will remain subcritical. A strong back
door cold front is expected to enter eastern NM Tuesday and trend
temperatures below normal again with higher humidity for the east.
This front will move west through the Rio Grande Valley Tuesday night
and push moisture westward toward the AZ state line. Wednesday will
feature cooler temperatures across the west with higher humidity and
perhaps some light showers around the high terrain. A stronger back
door front is expected to enter eastern NM Thursday with even better
chances for wetting precipitation across a larger part of the state
through Saturday.
