700 AM MDT Sat Apr 29 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TODAY TO 7 PM MDT THIS
EVENING...

.DISCUSSION...
Expect wide range of weather today across southern New Mexico
behind an overnight cold front and a passing upper-level storm
system. Breezy to windy conditions will continue today with winds
turning more northwest and northerly today behind the cold front.
Temperatures area wide will be noticeably cooler as temps tumble
about 20 degrees from Friday`s readings. Despite some moisture
being in the region with this pair of weather features, dry air
will quickly move back over SW New Mexico. Critical fire weather
condition`s are expected Saturday over the low elevations of the
southwest quarter of New Mexico. Additional showers, and isolated
thunderstorms are possible over the mountains (especially the SACs)
and surrounding lowlands north of Las Cruces and east of the Rio
Grande. The colder air should produce some light snow (1-3
inches) in the mountains, mainly above 7000 ft in the Sacramento
Mountains. The storm will clear out Sunday. Temps will quickly
rebound 10 degrees Sunday, and another 10 degrees Monday to get
back above normal. Winds will remain typical spring-like breezy
most afternoons, but remain well below the windy levels we saw
this past week but still near critical thresholds.

.DISCUSSION...

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT TODAY UNTIL 9 PM MDT FOR ALL AREAS
EXCEPT THE SACRAMENTO MOUNTAINS...

Strong west winds have returned to the Borderland and will stay
elevated through Saturday. Relative humidities today remain in the
10-15 percent range so previously issued Red Flag Warning for all
lowland areas and the Gila region will stand. RH`s in the Sacs
continue to be just above critical conditions. Tomorrow moisture
levels will increase area wide keeping just the lowlands in
critical conditions for hour or two during the afternoon. On
Saturday winds will continue, moisture levels will increase
further but temperatures will be much cooler due to the passage of
a cold front. Both Friday and Saturday showers and a possible
thunderstorm could occur mainly over the mountain zones. Some
light snow is not out of the question either, for higher mountain
zones. Temperatures will rebound back for early next week with
daily breezy and dry conditions.

EVENING...
...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 9 PM MDT
THIS EVENING...
...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO 3 AM MDT
FRIDAY...

.DISCUSSION...
Relative humidities today will be falling into the 10-15 percent
range as afternoon winds increase thus a Red Flag Warning is in
effect for all lowland areas and the Gila region. RH`s in the
Sacs look to remain just outside of critical conditions. Starting
tomorrow moisture begins to increases area wide. This should keep
critical conditions to just an hour or two in the lowlands
tomorrow. Similar conditions will occur Saturday but temperatures
will be cooler and humidity levels even higher. Both Friday and
Saturday showers with a possible thunderstorm could occur mainly
over the mountain zones. Some light snow is not out of the
question either, for the mountain zones. Temperatures begin to
warm back up early next week with daily afternoon breezes and dry
conditions.
