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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong to damaging winds will impact areas from Clines Corners
southward to Ruidoso and eastward to the Texas border. Gusts near 50
to 60 mph will be possible. Due to daytime humidities dropping below
15 percent, critical fire weather conditions are also expected for
the east central plains, despite below normal temperatures.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

A quick moving storm system will move across northern New Mexico
late Saturday night through Sunday morning with light snow
accumulations expected in the northern mountains. Another storm
system on Tuesday night and Wednesday may bring additional snow
accumulations to portions of New Mexico.
