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.
