This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of northern and

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A powerful low pressure system will continue to bring unsettled
weather to New Mexico with strong to severe winds and additional
snowfall.

Widespread strong winds will be common with areas along and
east of the central to south central mountains and highlands
observing the most severe winds. Gusts could reach 60 to 70 mph in

dust that will reduce visibility, and higher elevations will
periodically observe areas of blowing snow.

A couple to a few inches of snow have already fallen, leading to
slick and icy road conditions in some central to northern areas of
New Mexico. Additional snow accumulations will be light in west
central to northwestern New Mexico today, but more significant
additional amounts are expected in the northern mountains. Wintry
travel with reduced visibility, snow packed roads, and areas of
blowing snow are expected over much of north central New Mexico and
across the Raton Pass through the evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

No hazardous weather is expected at this time. However, weather can
change very rapidly. Always use the latest forecasts, watches and
warning for planning purposes.
