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

...MARGINAL CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS LIKELY ALONG AND WEST OF
THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY TUESDAY...

.DISCUSSION...Showers and thunderstorms with locally heavy heavy rain
will move east across the central mountain chain into eastern New
Mexico through tonight. Far western portions of the state are already
under the influence of much drier southwest flow arriving from Arizona.
This drier air will spread eastward Tuesday with marginal critical
fire weather conditions for several hours during the afternoon along
and west of the Rio Grande Valley. Eastern New Mexico will remain on
the wet side with daily rounds of showers and storms on Tuesday and
Wednesday. A ridge of high pressure will then build over the state
with much warmer temperatures, lighter winds, and very dry air.
