FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
712 AM MDT FRI MAY 22 2015

.DISCUSSION...
FAIRLY GOOD COVERAGE OF WETTING RAIN YESTERDAY FROM THE
CONTINENTAL DIVIDE EAST TO THE TEXAS BORDER. ALTHOUGH MUCH
DRIER AIR IS PUNCHING INTO THE STATE BEHIND THE DEPARTING
SYSTEM...THE LOWER ATMOSPHERE LAYER IS RELATIVELY MOIST WHICH
HAS LEAD TO EXCELLENT HUMIDITY RECOVERY ALONG AND EAST OF THE
CONTINENTAL DIVIDE EARLY THIS MORNING. MUCH DRIER AIR WILL MIX
DOWN TODAY...WITH MINIMUM HUMIDITY EXCEEDING CRITICAL THRESHOLD
ACROSS MUCH OF THE WEST AND PORTIONS OF THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY.
DRY AND UNSTABLE CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST ACROSS MUCH OF THE WEST
TODAY...WITH WINDS ALSO EXCEEDING CRITICAL THRESHOLD ACROSS THE
WEST CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST MOUNTAINS. HOWEVER...TEMPERATURES WILL
BE BELOW NORMAL WHICH WILL LIMIT THE POTENTIAL FOR FIRE GROWTH.
A DRYLINE WILL SPARK A ROUND OF THUNDERSTORMS OVERNIGHT...
BRINGING ANOTHER ROUND OF WETTING RAIN TO MUCH OF THE EASTERN
PLAINS. MORE DRYING SATURDAY...MAINLY EAST...AS THE DRYLINE
SHIFTS INTO THE TEXAS PANHANDLE. UNSETTLED WEATHER WITH BELOW
NORMAL DAYTIME TEMPERATURES WILL PERSIST INTO MONDAY WITH ANY
WETTING PRECIPITATION FAVORING NORTHERN NEW MEXICO.
