By The Staff

The Albuquerque office of the National Weather service has issued for a “red flag”  fire hazard warning for parts of New Mexico, effective until 9 p.m. According to their website at http://www.srh.noaa.gov/abq/ Los Alamos is in the middle of this danger zone.

“The most critical fire weather conditions are expected from the central highlands to the northeast plains where single digit humidities will combine with gusty westerly winds” said a statement in its report.

Those ramp up once an expected cold front hits, according to the NWS Albuquerque office.

“A vigorous cold front will then punch into the four corners region by early evening...advancing eastward tonight into Tuesday morning. This front combined with strong winds aloft will further enhance the potential for strong winds to the lee of the central mountain chain overnight into tuesday morning,” continued the statement.

So far the Los Alamos Fire Department hasn’t issued any restrictions yet, but that could change as the day goes on. They have also urged residents engaging in recreational activities to be aware and use caution when it comes to the use of fire or flammable materials.
