plains. Snow levels will stay above 9000 feet through Friday, but
will drop to around 6000 feet towards Saturday morning with
accumulations limited to an inch or two on grassy surfaces across
the Palmer Divide and valley regions.

Rain and snow will develop early Friday morning. Snow levels will
lower through the day as colder air moves in from the west.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Strong south winds will develop areawide with gusts in the 40 to 60
mph range. The strongest winds are expected in central areas, where
strong winds will persist through tonight. Dry conditions west of
the central mountain chain will result in critical fire weather
conditions this afternoon and early evening. However, a low pressure
system approaching from the west will draw low level moisture north
and northwestward into central parts of the state with thunderstorms
becoming widespread during the evening and overnight hours. There is
a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms in the Jemez Mountains,
Mount Taylor, and the central mountains, as well as the middle and
lower Rio Grande Valley. Some thunderstorms will produce little or no
rain with the potential for wind gusts up to 65 mph. In addition,
a few inches of snow accumulation is expected in the northern
mountains above 9,000 feet tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Friday, the upper level low pressure system will gradually track
eastward along the Colorado and New Mexico border causing rain
showers, thunderstorms and mountain snow showers to become
widespread. A few to several inches of additional snow accumulation
will be possible in the northern mountains above 9,000 feet, with a
few inches as low as 8,000 feet. There is a marginal risk of severe
thunderstorms as a dry line crosses the east central and southeast
plains on Friday afternoon.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be required in Harding, San Miguel, Quay,
Guadalupe, De Baca, Curry, Roosevelt and Chaves Counties on Friday
afternoon due to the risk of severe thunderstorms.
