Extremely critical fire weather conditions will return to

the Great Basin. Very strong winds, a very dry and unstable
airmass, and above normal temperatures will combine to produce the
extreme fire weather conditions. Critical fire weather conditions
will also impact the Middle Rio Grande Valley Thursday afternoon
with potential for isolated dry showers and thunderstorms towards
evening. A strong southeast wind will perist over western and central
New Mexico Thursday night and Friday while showers and thunderstorms
become more widespread and wetter. Snow will fall over the higher
mountain peaks of the north and west central mountains with
significant accumulations possible over the north above 9000 feet.
Mostly dry and cool Saturday with lingering showers in the north
central and east. Dry and milder Sunday.
