...STRONG JET AND PACIFIC TROUGH PASSAGE MONDAY AND TUESDAY...

A strong Pacific jet and trough will impact northern and central
New Mexico Monday through Tuesday. Winds will increase Monday
afternoon but a strengthening jet stream Monday night into
Tuesday will lead to widespread strong to very strong winds across
southern and eastern portions of the area. Some localized blowing
dust will be possible across the lower Rio Grande Valley and
southeast plains. Fire danger levels will also increase across the
eastern plains due to strong wind and low humidity Monday afternoon.

At the same time of the strengthening wind...a moist Pacific flow
will develop over the western and northern mountains as well as
the northwest plateau and expand eastward over the lowlands and
central mountains. Snow levels will start out on the higher side
Monday evening but then lower Tuesday morning as the main trough
moves overhead and cooler air infiltrates the area from the west.
The heaviest snowfall is expected above 7000 feet across the far
northwest and northwest highlands. Additional heavier snowfall is
expected across the higher elevations of the western and north
central mountains. Rain will primarily be found across the lower
elevations.
