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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday
A deep upper level low is forecast to move in from Arizona Tuesday
and continue over New Mexico Wednesday. This system has the
potential to produce significant rain and high elevation snow across
much of the state Tuesday night and Wednesday, particularly along and
east of the central mountain chain. Snow levels will be rather high
with this system (above 8000 feet or so). Uncertainty remains as to
how quickly the storm will move through the state. A slower moving
system could lead to impressive rain and high mountain snow amounts
across portions of the northern two thirds of the state.


Spotters are encouraged to report rainfall amounts and any flooding
through the National Weather Service Albuquerque web site at or by calling 1.888.386.7637.
