Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
238 PM MDT Thu Apr 27 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM FOR THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE
VALLEY...SANDIA...MANZANO AND GALLINAS MOUNTAINS...AND THE EAST
CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS...LOW HUMIDITY AND AN UNSTABLE
ATMOSPHERE...

.DISCUSSION...
Forecast strong winds are materializing and humidity is dipping
below critical thresholds across southern portions of the warned
zones with sufficient breaks in cloud cover to allow for potential
fire growth. Critical fire weather conditions will be short-lived,
with humidity coming back up quickly this evening. Across northern
New Mexico higher humidity, showers and clouds prevail. A
significant trend change is in play, with much of north central and
eastern New Mexico in line for a major wetting precipitation evening
beginning tomorrow and continuing through Saturday night. The
combination of an anomalously cold upper low and a strong backdoor
cold front will favor roughly the northeast quarter of the state,
including the Sandias/Manzanos, for wetting precipitation. A very
cold airmass will be left in the wake of the departing upper low
Saturday night, with many lower elevation areas seeing a late season
freeze/hard freeze. Dry northwest flow will begin Sunday with a
warming/drying trend persisting into Tuesday. Despite the warming,
high temperatures are still forecast below normal through Tuesday.
