FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM  
253 PM MDT SAT MAR 25 2017  
 
...FIRE WEATHER WATCH SUNDAY AFTERNOON FOR THE EAST CENTRAL PLAINS  
DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW HUMIDITY...  
   
DISCUSSION
 
AN UPPER LEVEL LOW APPROACHING FROM THE WEST WILL SHIFT  
WINDS TO THE WEST AND NORTHWEST THROUGH TONIGHT. A FEW RAIN SHOWERS  
AND HIGH TERRAIN SNOW IS LIKELY OVER THE NORTHERN AND WESTERN HIGH  
TERRAIN. WINDS WILL REMAIN STRONG INTO SUNDAY ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE  
DEPARTING WAVE. A DRY SLOT WITHIN THIS FLOW ALONG WITH ABOVE NORMAL  
TEMPERATURES WILL CREATE CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS OVER THE  
EAST CENTRAL PLAINS. A BACK DOOR COLD FRONT WILL THEN RACE DOWN THE  
PLAINS SUNDAY EVENING AND LEAD TO EXCELLENT HUMIDITY RECOVERIES FOR  
MONDAY MORNING. FLOW ALOFT WILL BECOME ZONAL THEN SOUTHWEST THROUGH  
MONDAY AFTERNOON WITH ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AGAIN. AN AREA OF  
CRITICAL CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP ALONG AND SOUTH OF I-40 DEPENDING ON  
HOW DEEP MIXING CAN EVOLVE. A MUCH WETTER PATTERN IS ON TAP BEGINNING  
TUESDAY AS A WAVE TRAIN SLIDES SOUTHEAST THROUGH THE AREA AND BRINGS  
HIGHER CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION, ESPECIALLY OVER THE NORTHERN HIGH  
TERRAIN AND THE EASTERN PLAINS.
