Critically Dangerous To Extremely Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions!


In Between Storms Today.

Southeastern New Mexico will be in between two storms today as the first and weaker storm departs, and the second and stronger storm deepens as it approaches the state. We are in store for a very windy and dusty weekend.

A High Wind Warning has already been issued for the Guadalupe Mountains from Noon Saturday through 6 PM Sunday. Southwesterly winds sustained at around 35-50 mph with gusts in the neighborhood of 75 mph are forecast. 

Southwesterly winds are forecast to gust up to around 35 mph this afternoon across the lower elevations of SE NM. These winds are expected to increase to sustained speeds of around 25-30 mph with gusts to around 45 mph on Saturday. Even stronger winds are forecast on Sunday with southwesterly winds forecast to gust up to around 60 mph.

Localized areas of blowing dust will occur on Saturday, with a more widespread blowing dust event anticipated for Sunday. The visibility may be reduced down to less than a mile at times over most of the area on Sunday. 

Critically Dangerous to Extremely Critically Dangerous Fire Weather Conditions are forecast for the area for today into Sunday. There could be the potential for a Regional Fire Weather Outbreak on Sunday, with life and property being potentially threatened. Red Flag Warnings are in effect today and will likely continue into the weekend.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
