Fire Weather Planning Forecast for North and Central New Mexico
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
330 AM MDT Mon May 22 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Northwest flow aloft combined with return flow of low level moisture
will continue to produce scattered convection central and east
through Tuesday. Isolated and potentially drier convection possible
Rio Grande Valley as drier northwest flow will help to mix out any
moisture which does make it west of the central mountain chain. Cell
motion will be generally to the east and southeast through tonight.
Vent rates today and Tuesday good to excellent with the exception of
some fair to poor rates east today. High temperatures through Tuesday
remaining near to below average. Drier, windier and warmer mid to
late week with widespread high Haines, high mixing heights and
temperatures near to above average combining to produce critical fire
weather conditions especially Thursday and Friday.
