This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of north and central
New Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A red flag warning is in effect this afternoon for the Sangre De
Cristos...the northeast and east central plains where low humidities
combined with strong winds and above normal temperatures will create
critical fire weather conditions.

A storm system deepening across the Great Basin will arrive in New
Mexico today strengthening as it crosses the state before departing
Friday. Strong to damaging southwest winds are anticipated this
afternoon until sunset across much of central and eastern New Mexico.
Rain and mountain snow will favor the western and northern mountains

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Temperatures will turn cooler with lingering snow showers across the
northern mountains and persistent strong winds central and east on
Friday. Activity will gradually taper down Friday evening as the
system exits to the east. Two more upper level systems will bring
windier, wetter and cooler conditons to New Mexico Saturday night and
Sunday and Tuesday through Thursday.


Spotter activation is not anticipated.
