...LOCALLY HAZARDOUS TRAVEL CONDITIONS MAY DEVELOP ACROSS PARTS
OF CENTRAL NEW MEXICO TODAY...

Significantly colder temperatures along with light precipitation
in the form of drizzle and freezing drizzle are forecast today as
an arctic front moves through eastern and central New Mexico. The
light activity will impact parts of the Estancia Valley, Central
Highlands and Sacramento Mountains during the afternoon and early
evening hours. Locally hazardous travel conditions could develop
due to a thin glaze of ice, mainly on elevated surfaces. The risk
includes portions of Interstate 40 and U.S. Highways 60 and 285.

Strong gap winds will impact the Rio Grande and Upper Tularosa
Valleys, with peak wind gusts of 45 mph during the daytime hours.
Persons traveling on north-south oriented roads should be alert
to gusty cross winds in these areas.
