Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
555 AM MDT Sun Apr 30 2017

.DISCUSSION...
After the snow comes to an end this morning, northwest winds and cool
temperatures will be the big stories for today. The strongest winds
winds will be across northeast New Mexico where gusts near 50 mph are
possible. Though warmer today, temperatures will remain well
below normal but fortunately, the warming trend continues through
Tuesday. On Tuesday night and Wednesday, a storm system will clip
northeast New Mexico. An associated front will push through the
state, and the back door segment will increase the potential for
showers and thunderstorms from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains
eastward. An upper level ridge will move over the area to end the
week.
