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.
