Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
503 AM MDT Sat Apr 21 2018

.DISCUSSION...A break from the critical fire weather conditions has
arrived with the current storm system exiting the Front Range of the
Rockies. Widespread excellent recoveries with fog and low clouds are
impacting eastern New Mexico this morning. Even parts of western New
Mexico are seeing some low clouds with excellent recoveries. Moisture
will remain in place over eastern New Mexico today while some drying
arrives over the west. Temperatures will warm closer to normal Sunday
with light winds. A weak wave will pass north of New Mexico Monday
and allow drier, westerly flow to spread over the area. Temperatures
will warm 5 to 10 degrees above normal but winds will be subcritical.
A moist, back door front will enter eastern New Mexico Tuesday with
another surge of higher humidity, clouds, and even some very light
precipitation possible Tuesday night. The front will shift west into
the Rio Grande Valley with higher moisture perhaps making it all the
way to the Continental Divide Wednesday. Another front will attempt
to reinforce moisture over the state Thursday and Friday with better
chances for showers and storms.
