Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
304 PM MDT Thu Mar 30 2017

.DISCUSSION...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY
AND PORTIONS OF THE EAST CENTRAL PLAINS FRIDAY DUE TO STRONG WINDS
AND LOW HUMIDITY...

The weather pattern will continue to remain fickle throughout the
forecast period with bouts of stronger winds, large temperature
swings, and occasional precipitation. Tonight into Friday winds will
strengthen more, especially over the central to eastern zones with
low humidity also developing in the Middle Rio Grande valley and
portions of the east central plains where a few hours of critical
fire weather conditions are expected. Temperatures will fall below
normal through the weekend while winds shift in direction, but speeds
should remain light to moderate. The exception will be in
northeastern to east central New Mexico where a cold front will
invade on Saturday. Precipitation will also develop this weekend,
mostly in the western and northern zones, but primarily focused along
and near the Colorado-New Mexico border. Breezy to windy conditions
return into Monday and Tuesday of next week.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
634 AM MDT Thu Mar 30 2017

.DISCUSSION...
...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FOR THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY AND
PORTIONS OF EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

A warmer day is on tap, with above normal highs and plenty of
sunshine. Winds will be on the uptrend as well, as a Pacific storm
system approaches from over the Great Basin. A few hours of critical
fire weather conditions are forecast across the Northwest/West
Central Highlands this afternoon, but coverage of critical conditions
is not sufficient to trigger a warning. Winds will continue the
uptrend overnight into Friday as the storm system progresses into
northwest New Mexico. The East Central Plains and the southern half
of the Middle RGV are still on track to reach critical threshold
Friday. Dry/windy conditions will quickly be replaced by colder
conditions with increasing chances for wetting precipitation Friday
night into Saturday as the Pacific system moves slowly eastward
across northern New Mexico. Elevated fire weather conditions are
likely Monday as winds trend up in advance of another potent system.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
241 PM MDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FOR THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY AND
PORTIONS OF EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

An active spring weather pattern will continue throughout the
forecast period with bouts of stronger winds, large temperature
swings, and occasional precipitation. An abrupt warm-up is expected
Thursday while breezy to windy conditions develop. Humidity will drop
near critical values in some spotty locations over the western
highlands Thursday afternoon. On Friday winds strengthen more,
especially over the central to eastern zones with low humidity also
developing in the Middle Rio Grande valley and portions of the east
central plains. This could lead to a few hours of critical fire
weather conditions. Temperatures will fall below normal through the
weekend while winds shift in direction, but speeds should remain
light to moderate. Precipitation will also develop this weekend,
mostly in the western and northern zones, but primarily focused along
and near the Colorado-New Mexico border. Breezy to windy conditions
return into Monday and Tuesday of next week.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
620 AM MDT Wed Mar 29 2017

.DISCUSSION...
An upper level low will over southeast New Mexico will continue
moving east this morning. The organized band of moderate to heavy
precipitation over the eastern plains will shift east into Texas this
afternoon. Strong north winds will continue through the day across
the northeast plains, subsiding during the late afternoon and early
evening. Isolated showers will likely develop across most mountain
ranges late this afternoon into early evening. A break in between
storm systems is forecast for Thursday with another upper low on
track for Friday and Saturday. This low will move east through the
state slight farther north than the current system with the favored
area for wetting precipitation setting up across the northeast
quarter of the state. Strong winds ahead of this system will likely
lead to critical fire weather condtions across the southern half of
the state Friday afternoon. Mainly dry and breezy conditions are
forecast for Sunday and Monday ahead of a weak upper level trough
forecast to move through northern New Mexico Monday night and
Tuesday.
