Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
344 AM MST Tue Nov 12 2019

.DISCUSSION...
Warmer across eastern New Mexico today and Wednesday as winds shift
out of the southwest, winds will be lighter and out of the west
through western New Mexico. A dry backdoor front will only bring a
northeasterly wind shift through eastern New Mexico Wednesday. The
warmer temperatures and high Haines will allow for elevated fire
weather through east-central New Mexico Wednesday afternoon.
Temperatures fall again through eastern New Mexico Thursday, warming
again Friday and Saturday. Western New Mexico will see relatively
stable temperatures through the forecast period. Widespread poor
ventilation will also encompass most of the forecast area for the
latter half of the week.
