Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
439 AM MST Sun Feb 16 2020

.DISCUSSION...
Today`s high temperatures will climb some 5 to 10 degrees above
normal, and relative humidity will drop considerably. A few locations
within central valleys and the eastern plains will observe minimum
humidity of 15 to 20 percent in the afternoon hours. Strong winds are
also forecast this afternoon along and east of the central mountain
chain where gusts will occasionally approach 35 to 45 mph.
High temperatures will run a couple degrees cooler on Monday, but
still remain above average over most of the forecast area with breezy
to windy conditions redeveloping along and east of the central
mountain chain. A couple of cold fronts will then usher cooler
temperatures into eastern and eventually central New Mexico Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday. This cooler air will alleviate critical fire
weather concerns.
