.DISCUSSION...

Friday. Also tonight through Friday, poor overnight humidity
recoveries and high Haines become more widespread, along with areal
coverage and duration of single digit daytime humidities. Daytime
highs will be near to above normal. Westerly winds strengthen as
well, leading to increasing areal coverage of critical fire weather
conditions, with the most widespread coverage Friday. Forecast models
indicate a return to below normal high temperatures this weekend,
with showers and storms resuming over far northern New Mexico.
However, poor overnight humidity recoveries to persist over the Rio
