URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service El Paso Tx/Santa Teresa NM
344 PM MDT Fri Apr 28 2017

...Windy with blowing dust across much of Southern New Mexico and
Far West Texas continue this evening...

.A late spring storm system organizing over the central Rockies
will drop down to northern New Mexico tonight and Saturday. This
system will create strong west winds that will persist into the
evening. Winds will peak out around 25 to 35 mph late this
afternoon, with gusts to 40 to 50 mph. Local blowing dust could
reduce visibilities to one mile or less in dust prone areas,
especially from Deming south and west. A cold front will push in
this evening and overnight to keep the winds up. The winds will
diminish some mid-evening tonight most areas but remain breezy,
the exception being along east slopes of terrain, where the strong
winds will continue past midnight and into early Saturday
morning.
