High wind, low humidity equals fire danger

The Associated Press

ALBUQUERQUE — Dry winds and low humidity on the first full day of spring means an extreme fire danger in New Mexico. The National Weather Service has issued high wind warnings across the entire state Monday.

Forecasters predict gusts of nearly 60 mph with blowing dust after noon. The wind advisory remains in effect until 8 p.m.

Blowing dust may reduce visibility along the Interstate 10 corridor from Lordsburg to Las Cruces and along the I-10 and I-25 corridors from Las Cruces to El Paso.

Forecasters say strong winds could impact high profile vehicles.
