Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions
Potential For Wind Driven Fires

At sunrise this morning an upper-level trough of low pressure was easing into western New Mexico. This trough will continue to move eastward today across the state. A deep surface low was located in southeastern Colorado and western Kansas. A dry Pacific Cold Front will sweep across New Mexico today from west to east. 

Strong southwesterly winds kept our overnight low temperatures up last night across southeastern New Mexico. Most reporting stations were reporting temperatures in the 50's and 60's at sunrise this morning. Most of us should see our afternoon highs in the low 80's.

Another windy and dusty day in in store for us. Areas of blowing dust may reduce the visibility down to less than one half of a mile in the normally dust prone areas. This will be especially true near open or freshly plowed farmland, fields, lots, and construction sites. Southwesterly winds are forecast to gust up to 50-55 mph across the southeastern plains today.

A dangerous fire weather setup will exist across the area today. Strong southwesterly winds will have the potential to promote the rapid growth and spread of any fire that should break out. Please refrain from any type of outdoor activity that involves the use of sparks of flame.
