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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A Red Flag Warning is in effect through this evening for the
northeast highlands below significant snowpack and the northeast and
east central plains where low humidities combined with strong winds
will create critical fire weather conditions.

Strong winds with gusts up to 50 mph are likely across northeastern
NM where a Wind Advisory is in effect through this evening. Areas of
blowing dust are possible which may reduce visibility. A few light
showers with gusty and erratic winds will be possible for areas west
of the central mountain chain.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

Critical fire weather conditions will redevelop and become more
widespread Wednesday. Critical fire weather conditions will
redevelop again on Thursday and Friday, but should be limited to
eastern portions of the state.

Windy conditions will continue through the end of the week with
Wednesday likely being the windiest day across the area. Areas of
blowing dust will be possible, especially across eastern NM.

A potent Pacific storm system will impact the area Friday and into
the weekend, bringing the potential for significant snowfall to the
northern mountains, northeast highlands, and the Raton Pass area.
