...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT THURSDAY FOR THE WEST CENTRAL  
HIGHLANDS...MIDDLE RIO GRANDE VALLEY...SANDIA...MANZANO AND  
GALLINAS MOUNTAINS...AND THE EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG  
WINDS...LOW HUMIDITY AND AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...  
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
THURSDAY IS LOOKING RATHER WINDY, WITH CHANCES FOR WETTING  
PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE NORTH AND RELATIVELY DRY CONDITIONS ACROSS  
THE SOUTH WHERE A FIRE WEATHER WATCH IS IN EFFECT. HOWEVER,  
SUFFICIENT CLOUD COVER MAY BE IN PLACE TO LIMIT FIRE BEHAVIOR. A  
COOLING/MOISTENING PHASE WILL BEGIN FRIDAY AND CONTINUE THROUGH  
SATURDAY NIGHT AS THE COMBINATION OF A COLD FRONT AND STRONG UPPER  
LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IMPACT THE AREA. NORTHERN NEW MEXICO WILL  
LIKELY SEE ACCUMULATING SNOW, WITH SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS POSSIBLE IN  
THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS AND ACROSS THE RATON RIDGE/JOHNSON MESA.  
TEMPERATURES WILL PLUMMET SATURDAY, WITH MUCH OF THE AREA FORECAST TO  
DIP BELOW FREEZING SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY MORNING. MANY LOWER  
ELEVATION LOCALES ACROSS NORTHERN NEW MEXICO WILL EXPERIENCE A HARD  
FREEZE. A WARMING/DRYING TREND WILL BEGIN SUNDAY AND CONTINUE INTO  
TUESDAY WITH, BUT WITH TEMPERATURES ACROSS MOST OF THE AREA REMAINING  
AT OR BELOW NORMAL UNDER DRY NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT. ALTHOUGH NOT  
FORECAST AT THIS TIME, THERE IS SOME POTENTIAL FOR CRITICAL FIRE  
WEATHER CONDITIONS TUESDAY GENERALLY SOUTH OF INTERSTATE 40.
