The high wind advisory continues today from noon to 9:00 PM tonight.
It was windy yesterday and that will be continuing today. The good thing is that it will taper off tomorrow.
But, there will be a Red Flag Warning for Fire Weather from noon to midnight tonight:
URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
343 AM MDT Mon Jun 8 2020
...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT TODAY FROM NOON THROUGH MIDNIGHT FOR ALL OF NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO DUE TO STRONG WINDS, LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...
...FIRE WEATHER WATCH IN EFFECT FROM MID MORNING THROUGH LATE
AFTERNOON TUESDAY FOR THE SANDIA, MANZANO AND GALLINA MOUNTAINS AND THE EAST CENTRAL PLAINS DUE TO STRONG WINDS, LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND AN UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...
.Widespread critical fire weather conditions are expected today
across all of northern and central New Mexico. Strong southwest
to west winds and single digit humidities will be the rule. This
evening and overnight, a strong cold front will switch winds
around to the northwest. Expect a one to three hour period of very
strong winds behind the front, which would keep any ongoing fires
active into the overnight period. Winds will remain breezy to
windy on Tuesday, and though temperatures will be below normal,
very dry conditions will persist. Therefore, critical fire weather
conditions may return for the Sandia, Manzano and Gallinas
Mountains and the East Central Plains Tuesday.
