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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Wintry weather will continue to impact the high terrain of west
central to northwestern New Mexico and also areas along the east
slopes of the central mountain chain through the morning. A couple
inches of additional snow accumulation will be possible in the higher
peaks above 8,000 feet in west central, northwestern, and northern
New Mexico while the east slopes of the central mountain chain tend
to observe a wintry mix of precipitation, consisting of snow,
freezing rain or drizzle, and sleet. Overall, light to only
occasionally moderate accumulations are expected.

Temperatures will warm into the afternoon, limiting wintry
precipitation impacts, but these could return late this evening.

In addition, windy conditions will impact the middle Rio Grande
valley and portions of west central New Mexico where occasional gusts
of 45 to 55 mph will be possible through the early evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Much like today, wintry weather will continue to impact similar
locations through the morning hours Thursday and again Thursday
night. Overall, light to only occasionally moderate accumulations of
snow, freezing drizzle, and sleet are expected.


Spotters are encouraged to report any snow, sleet, or ice
accumulation to the National Weather Service Albuquerque via our web
site at or by phone at 1.888.386.7637. You can also
