Sunday night. A few to several inches of snow accumulation is likely
across the western and northern mountains. Rain is the likely
precipitation type at lower elevations. Above normal temperatures
today will drop below normal across western and central New Mexico
Sunday, but will quickly rebound on Monday as a ridge moves overhead.
Monday looks windy across portions of central and eastern New
Mexico, but Thursday looks to be extremely windy. Critical fire
weather conditions may return for portions of the east and the Rio
Grande Valley Thursday afternoon.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
649 AM MST Fri Feb 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Strong winds will develop along and just east of the Sandia and
Manzano Mountains today where gusts near 45 to 50 mph will be
possible by mid day. Additionally, a surface low across the eastern
plains will slide southward dragging a weak front behind it. Though
temperatures will not alter significantly, much drier conditions will
slide into the northeast plains. Humidities may fall below 15 percent
this afternoon. Critical fire weather conditions are not expected
since the strongest winds are displaced from the lowest humidities. A
storm system will bring mountain snow and low elevation rains to New
Mexico on Sunday. Accumulations will be on the lighter side, though
wetting precipitation is likely across the northwest half of the
state. Quieter conditions are expected early next week, but a much
windier pattern is in store for the Thursday timeframe.
