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 along the central and
lower Rio Grande valley where near seasonal normal temperatures with
drier air will help nudge dewpoints below critical thresholds for a
few hours today. Strong winds will redevelop today central and east
with damaging high winds across the eastern plains as a secondary
cold front pushes southward. Chances of blowing dust will develop
across the NE Plains. Drier and cooler conditions will prevail

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Sat will be dry and mild allowing temperatures to rebound a few
degrees above normal. Light to moderate precipitation will develop
across the northern tier with breezes central and east Sat night
into Sunday as the second storm system clips northern New Mexico. The
third, more potent storm system will bring widespread unsettling
weather Tues through Thurs.


Spotter activation is not anticipated.
