Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New
Mexico...UPDATED
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
200 PM MST Fri Feb 24 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 6 PM TODAY FOR THE
EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 6PM SATURDAY FOR
THE EAST CENTRAL AND NORTHEAST PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND
LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...
Another round of very dry west to northwest winds will impact NM
today. Critical fire weather conditions will focus over the east
central plains. Marginal critical fire conditions are likely over
portions of central NM however a cooler and more stable airmass
should mitigate the overall threat. High temperatures will trend
several degrees warmer Saturday and winds will be more southwesterly
across NM. Critical fire conditions are possible Saturday afternoon
across northeast and east central NM. A series of upper level
disturbances will race eastward over NM Sunday through Tuesday and
create daily bouts of strong winds, colder temperatures, and perhaps
some light accumulations of high terrain snow across northern NM.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
608 AM MST Fri Feb 24 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 6 PM TODAY FOR THE EAST
CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...

.DISCUSSION...
Another round of very dry west to northwest winds will impact NM
today. Critical fire weather conditions will focus over the east
central plains. Marginal critical fire conditions are likely over
portions of central NM however a cooler and more stable airmass
should mitigate the overall threat. High temperatures will trend
several degrees warmer Saturday and winds will be more southwesterly
across NM. Marginal critical fire conditions are possible Saturday
afternoon across northeast NM. A series of upper level disturbances
will race eastward over NM Sunday through Tuesday and create daily
bouts of strong winds, colder temperatures, and perhaps some light
accumulations of high terrain snow across northern NM.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
615 AM MST Thu Feb 23 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 7 PM TODAY FOR EASTERN
NEW MEXICO...THE MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY...AND SANDIA...MANZANO...
AND GALLINAS MOUNTAINS BELOW SIGNIFICANT SNOW PACK DUE TO STRONG
WINDS...LOW HUMIDITY AND AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...

...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH
FRIDAY AFTERNOON FOR THE EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS...
LOW HUMIDITY AND AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...

.DISCUSSION...
Strong west winds will increase rapidly after sunrise today and peak
this afternoon with gusts of 50 to 60 mph over much of central and
eastern NM. The combination of these strong winds with low humidity
and an unstable atmosphere will create critical fire weather, with
extreme conditions likely across the eastern plains. Colder air will
move into the state behind this system and limit the critical fire
conditions mainly to the east central plains Friday. Breezy and dry
conditions will continue into Saturday with temperatures trending
several degrees warmer compared to Friday. The next system will move
into NM Sunday and deliver yet another round of windy conditions to
much of central and eastern NM. Wetting rain and mountain snowfall is
possible across the northwest half with this next system. The active
pattern will continue into early next week with a couple more shots
at critical fire weather conditions.
