Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
218 PM MDT Sun Mar 26 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON FOR THE EAST CENTRAL
PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...Dry northwest flow behind a departing upper level
trough will generate critical fire weather conditions over the east
central plains through sunset. A cold front approaching from the
north will end the critical threat quickly after passage and lead to
widespread excellent humidity recoveries over eastern NM tonight.
Monday will feature winds turning back around to the southwest with
some marginal critical conditions south of the highway 60 corridor.
Temperatures will trend up several degrees all areas. An upper wave
will approach from the Four Corners Tuesday and increase winds over
the entire region, especially the eastern plains. Wetting rain and
high terrain snowfall will impact northern and western NM Tuesday
afternoon before shifting into the northeastern quadrant of NM for
Wednesday. Heavy mountain snow and valley rain is possible with this
event for northern NM. Cooler temperatures, higher humidity, and
thicker cloud cover will impact the remainder of the area through
Wednesday. Another storm system will slide into the region Friday
through Sunday with continued unsettled conditions.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
554 AM MDT Sun Mar 26 2017

.DISCUSSION...
...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON FOR THE EAST CENTRAL
PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

An upper level disturbance will keep a few showers going over the
north central to northeastern sections of New Mexico today. Winds
will shift northwesterly and pick up in speed with even a northerly
direction observed in the northeastern plains this afternoon. Some
stronger speeds of 15 to 25 mph will be observed in many locales and
even higher speeds of 25 to 35 mph in the central highlands and east
central plains. Low humidity will also develop in the east central
plains, giving critical fire weather conditions. On Monday, expect
temperatures to rebound a few degrees while breezes shift from the
south southwest with light to moderate speeds. A strong low pressure
system is still forecast to arrive by Tuesday and Wednesday with
cooling temperatures and increasing precipitation chances.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
253 PM MDT Sat Mar 25 2017

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH SUNDAY AFTERNOON FOR THE EAST CENTRAL PLAINS
DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...An upper level low approaching from the west will shift
winds to the west and northwest through tonight. A few rain showers
and high terrain snow is likely over the northern and western high
terrain. Winds will remain strong into Sunday on the back side of the
departing wave. A dry slot within this flow along with above normal
temperatures will create critical fire weather conditions over the
east central plains. A back door cold front will then race down the
plains Sunday evening and lead to excellent humidity recoveries for
Monday morning. Flow aloft will become zonal then southwest through
Monday afternoon with above normal temperatures again. An area of
critical conditions may develop along and south of I-40 depending on
how deep mixing can evolve. A much wetter pattern is on tap beginning
Tuesday as a wave train slides southeast through the area and brings
higher chances for precipitation, especially over the northern high
terrain and the eastern plains.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
542 AM MDT Sat Mar 25 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Temperatures will climb today, rising a few to several degrees above
yesterday`s highs. Winds will be light initially this morning, but
will turn breezy for many zones this afternoon and humidity will
drop below 15 to 20 percent in many zones. Winds will shift
northwesterly into Sunday, and even northerly in the plains with some
stronger speeds of 15 to 25 mph in many locales and even higher
speeds of 25 to 35 mph in the central highlands. Cooler temperatures
will also work into New Mexico on Sunday, and this should keep
humidity from dropping too low. However, some brief and localized
critical humidity could still be observed with the stronger winds
over the east central plains and perhaps a few spots in the middle
Rio Grande valley Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will bounce back up
a few degrees on Monday, and otherwise breezes will shift from the
south southwest with light to moderate speeds. Yet another low
pressure system could arrive by Tuesday and Wednesday with cooling
temperatures and some increases in precipitation chances.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
249 PM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT THROUGH EARLY EVENING FOR THE MIDDLE
RIO GRANDE VALLEY OF NEW MEXICO DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW
HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...A very active weather pattern will continue impacting
NM for at least the next 7 days. The potent storm system that dumped
heavy snowfall over the northern high terrain will continue moving
east into the Great Plains. Strong winds will taper off over eastern
NM tonight. A hard freeze is likely over many areas of northern NM
that haven`t seen a freeze in a while. Winds will come around to the
southwest Saturday and generate marginal critical fire weather for
portions of central NM and the Rio Grande Valley. The next wave will
shift across northern NM Saturday night and create some light snow
for the high terrain. Windy conditions will continue into Sunday with
the focus for a more solid area of critical fire weather over the
southeastern plains. More windy, dry, and warm conditions will occur
Monday with critical fire weather conditions possible over parts of
NM. The next system will shift into the state Tuesday and Wednesday
with cooler temperatures, scattered rain and snow showers, wind, and
higher humidity. Yet another significant storm system is on the
horizon for Thursday and Friday.

National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
610 AM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...
...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY EVENING
FOR MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY OF NEW MEXICO DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND
LOW HUMIDITY...

Precipitation will continue over the northern mountains along with
strong to severe winds in many other areas of the state today. Winds
could spike up with gusts of 60-75 mph by late morning in portions
of northeastern and east central New Mexico. Precipitation will
slowly diminish toward the afternoon hours, and cooler temperatures
will be observed. However, minimum humidity values will fall below
critical thresholds for a few hours this afternoon in the middle Rio
Grande valley. Thus, a Red Flag warning has been issued. Winds will
finally diminish after dark this evening. A rebound in temperatures
is forecast Saturday with dry conditions and light to moderate
breezes. Breezy to windy conditions will take shape Sunday afternoon
with slightly cooler temperatures and some light precipitation over
the northern tier of the state. Dry and mostly tranquil conditions
are then expected on Monday before the next weather disturbance
arrives on Tuesday.
