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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

An upper level low pressure system crossing Colorado will steer the
jet stream over New Mexico today producing strong to very strong
southwest winds. The potential exists for widespread wind gusts from
40 to 50 mph with gusts up to 60 mph in the mountains, except up to
70 mph in the south central mountains and adjacent high plains. A
Pacific cold front will shift the wind direction out of the west
across western areas late in the day. A few inches of snow will also
be possible in the northern mountains this afternoon into Tuesday
morning, except locally over a half foot in the Tusas Mountains
above Chama.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

No hazardous weather is expected at this time. However, weather can
change very rapidly. Always use the latest forecasts, watches and
warning for planning purposes.
