Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
605 AM MDT Wed Apr 25 2018

.DISCUSSION...
A relatively strong backdoor cold front continues to push west
of the continental divide toward the Arizona border this morning.
Low clouds from the east slopes of the central mountain chain
eastward will gradually dissipate during the late morning and early
afternoon. High temperatures will remain below seasonal average
central and east today. Another backdoor cold front is forecast to
drop south through the eastern plains Thursday, push south and west
Thursday night. By Friday afternoon, south winds at the surface and
near mountain top level will draw Gulf moisture out of Mexico and
result in shower and thunderstorm chances across western New Mexico.
Showers and thunderstorms will shift eastward into central New Mexico
Saturday before drier air works in on strengthening southwest winds
Sunday.
