...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT BETWEEN NOON AND 9 PM TODAY FOR THE
NORTHWEST PLATEAU...NORTHERN MOUNTAINS AND NORTHEAST HIGHLANDS

ATMOSPHERE...

.Hot, very dry and unstable conditions will prevail today across
portions of northern New Mexico. Single digit humidity values are
likely for several hours, especially across the Northwest Plateau
and Northern Mountains. The combination of a weak upper level
trough crossing the central Rockies, a deepening surface low over
northeast New Mexico and excellent mixing will allow strong
westerly winds to develop this afternoon. Breezy to windy
conditions are expected. Additionally, high temperatures will be
above normal. The strong winds are expected to diminish after
sunset to ease the critical fire weather threat.
