High Fire Danger followed by Chances for Rain?

May 18th, 2014 at 8:37 pm by under Weather



Fire danger is going to be on the rise over the next few days as temperatures climb above average and humidity levels drop into the single digits.   The winds won’t be out of control, but with the very hot temps and dry air in place it wouldn’t take much to get a fire going.   So the entire state is under a Red Flag Warning, which means absolutely no outdoor burning of any kind for at least the first half of the week.

By the time we get to Thursday and Friday, temperatures will start falling off and moisture will be increasing giving us a good shot for scattered storms.  Eastern New Mexico will be favored for most of the activity, but the moisture supply will likely increase towards the west as we go into Saturday and Sunday.   This will gives us a shot for some statewide t-storm activity.   Stay tuned…
