The temporary warning indicates the potential of a dangerous combination of wind, temperatures, relative humidity, and fuel or drought conditions that could spark fires.

The Weather Service says critical fire conditions are expected in the Middle Rio Grande Valley and eastward.

According to the state's Department of Health, their office in Deming, as well as Deming Public Schools, are closing early due to the high winds.

In Albuquerque, city officials issued a Shutdown Notice for Bernalillo County to contractors and businesses that generate dust. They are being told to shut down immediately due to air quality concerns.
