Winds aloft will strengthen over the region overnight and Friday, ahead of a fast moving system that will track over the southern rockies. Momentum mix down from these winds and development of a lee surface trough across eastern NM, will result in 20-foot sustained wind speeds 20-30 mph Friday from the west-southwest. Some gusts to 40 mph or even a little higher will be likely...particularly across the NM bootheel. With very low fuel moistures in place and high or greater fire dangers likely, critical fire conditions are expected Friday afternoon and possibly through Monday.
Increasing high and mid level moisture will stream across the area this evening, ahead of an upper level system that lifts northeast over the four corners overnight. This will result in very warm morning lows for your borderland, with readings over 15 degrees above normal for some locations. Winds will be light for most areas, with some west breezes expected over higher elevations in the Gila region, Sacramento Mtns. and along the far west TX highlands.
Windy and warm with above normal temperatures across southern New Mexico and west Texas on Friday. Blowing dust will lower the visibility across a few areas including portions of Interstate 10.
