Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
553 AM MDT Mon May 21 2018

.DISCUSSION...
Low-level Gulf moisture continues to move in from the east this
morning. This moisture will combine with an upper low dropping
southeastward through southern California to produce showers and
thunderstorms for much the area today and tonight. Wetting rains are
forecast for much of the area along and east of the continental
divide this afternoon through around midnight. A few dry storms
could develop west of the divide this afternoon. Drier air will push
into western and central NM Tuesday through Thursday with storms
continuing over the east. Temperatures warm, and winds increase
somewhat Friday but with building high pressure overhead, winds are
forecast to remain below critical thresholds.
