NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM  
613 AM MST THU MAR 4 2021  
 
...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR THE NORTHEAST AND EAST CENTRAL  
PLAINS FROM NOON UNTIL 6 PM MST TODAY DUE TO STRONG WINDS AND LOW  
HUMIDITY...  
   
DISCUSSION
 
 
A PACIFIC LOW AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT ARE ON APPROACH AND WILL  
MOVE ACROSS THE REGION LATER TODAY THROUGH TONIGHT. STRONG WINDS  
WILL DEVELOP LATER TODAY AND WHEN COMBINED WITH DOWNSLOPE WARMING  
WILL BRING CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS TO THE NORTHEAST AND  
EAST CENTRAL PLAINS, WHERE FUELS MAY BE RECEPTIVE TO THE SPREAD OF  
FIRE. THE PACIFIC LOW WILL BRING CHANCES FOR WETTING PRECIPITATION,  
MOSTLY IN THE FORM OF SNOW, TO THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS AND  
SURROUNDING HIGH TERRAIN. HIGH PRESSURE WILL FOLLOW FRIDAY INTO  
SATURDAY. THE SOUTHWESTERLIES WILL TREND UP SUNDAY THROUGH EARLY NEXT  
WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES RISING ABOVE TO WELL ABOVE NORMAL. WINDS WILL  
BE ON THE UPTREND FROM SUNDAY THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK, BUT  
THE JETSTREAM WILL BRING PACIFIC MOISTURE INTO THE REGION WHICH WOULD  
LIMIT THE POTENTIAL FOR CRITICAL FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS.
