This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of northern...
western...central...and southern Oklahoma...and western north
Texas.

.DAY ONE...Through Tonight...

No hazardous weather is expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday...

.Thunderstorms...
Thunderstorms will be possible Friday afternoon across southeast
Oklahoma, and Friday night across the entire area. A few strong to
severe storms cannot be ruled out across far southeast Oklahoma
late Friday night into early Saturday morning. Damaging wind
gusts would be the primary concern.

.Fire Weather...
Very strong winds and low humidities Saturday will create
elevated to near-critical fire weather conditions across western
north Texas and southwest Oklahoma.

.Strong winds...
Strong wind will spread over the region on Saturday. While the
strongest winds are expected across southwest Oklahoma and western
north Texas, where gusts of 50 to 60 mph will be possible, the
rest of the region will also see winds strong enough to make
driving difficult and displace light weight objects.

.Winter weather...
Rain may mix with or change over to snow across far northwest
Oklahoma Saturday afternoon as cold air moves in from Kansas.
Light accumulations will be possible, along with very low
visibilities due to blowing snow.

A winter storm warning for heavy snow is in effect for northwest New
Mexico beginning early this morning and for all of western New
Mexico beginning late this morning and continuing tonight. Travel is

snow could cause difficult to dangerous driving conditions and
reduced visibility.

develop late Friday night and continue through Saturday afternoon
east of the central mountains and south of I-40 with gusts to near 50
mph possible. North and south oriented roads and highways could be
difficult to travel, especially for high profile vehicles, as strong
