A ridge of high pressure continues to dominate our weather. So that means more sunshine and above average high temperatures. The winds will crank up this afternoon especially in parts of eastern New Mexico. The wind, dry conditions, and warm temps will elevate the fire danger. Red Flag Warnings are posted for some areas east of the Sacramento Mountains and into far southern New Mexico.
