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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Rain and snow showers will develop over northern and western New
Mexico today then spread into the southern mountains and parts of
southeast New Mexico through Thursday morning. Snow accumulations
will be very light however parts of the Sangre de Cristos and the
Sacramento/Capitan mountains may receive up to 3 inches.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Another weak storm system will spread snow showers southward along
the central mountain chain Thursday night and Friday morning where
light accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are possible. Temperatures will
be cold enough early Friday morning for slick travel conditions to
develop in areas that do pick up snowfall.

A potentially significant winter storm may move across New Mexico
Monday night through Tuesday night with strong winds, significantly
colder temperatures, and moderate snow accumulations. The northern
half of the state is currently at greatest risk for impacts from this
potential winter storm.
