fire weather watch 033021

CRITICAL FIRE CONDITIONS TO INTENSIFY TODAY... .Strong westerly flow aloft combined with a surface low pressure system over central New Mexico will result in an increase in southwesterly winds today. Wind will quickly intensify this afternoon across most of the area with sustained speeds of 20 to 30 mph throughout the afternoon and evening hours. At the same time very dry surface air and warm daytime temperatures will produce critical relative humidities of 6 to 12 percent. These weather conditions will create high fire danger across much of the U.S. Southwest. Winds are expected to subside by midnight, along with poor overnight RH recovery.

fire weather watch 033021Critical Fire Weather Conditions Expected on Tuesday... .An upper level system moving through the Rockies will set a westerly flow in southern New Mexico. The resulting surface low over southeastern Colorado will lead to a tight pressure gradient which translates to strong gusty west winds up to 25 mph over southern New Mexico and west Texas. The westerlies bring dry and warm air. Relative humidity drops to the single digits, while temperatures remain about 7 to 12 degrees above normal for the season.
