This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
New Mexico, southwest New Mexico, and southwest Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

An upper level storm system will move through the Borderland today
creating breezy to windy conditions. Wind speeds of 15 to 25mph
with gusts up to 35mph will be likely in most locations. The
strongest winds are expected west of the Rio Grande valley where
gusts up to 45mph will be possible during the afternoon hours.
This will create areas of blowing dust and reduced visibility, as
well as critical fire weather conditions as fires will be able to
spread rapidly. Secure any loose outdoor objects, avoid burning or
using equipment that creates sparks, and remain alert as travel
may become hazardous, especially for high profile vehicles. If
caught in a dust storm while driving, pull off completely to the
side of the road, take your foot off the brake, and wait for
visibility to improve. Winds will turn north/northeasterly
overnight and increase in speed around T-or-C. Additionally, a
slight chance of a light rain/snow mix will be possible in the
lowlands of northern Sierra and Otero Counties tonight into Monday
morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

High temperatures will be about 10 degrees below normal on
Monday. The next storm system may move through by mid-week with
another round of breezy winds. Otherwise, no hazardous weather is
expected at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed, though any reports of
blowing dust are encouraged.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A cold but moisture limited storm system will bring light snow
accumulation starting in the northern and western mountains today,
then becoming widespread tonight. A few inches of snow are expected
in the mountains along and east of the continental divide, and at
lower elevations along and south of I-40. A back door cold front
will precede the precipitation today, so snow will be able to
accumulate on roads tonight resulting in an icy commute for central
and southern areas Monday morning. In addition, east canyon wind
gusts are forecast to reach 50 mph within the middle and lower Rio
Grande Valley and upper Tularosa Valley tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Monday, snow will linger, especially across east central and
southeast areas where additional accumulation is expected. Storm
total accumulations should reach an inch or two, except up to 3
inches in the mountains.

Wednesday night through Thursday night, a warmer and moister storm
system will cross from the west with rain showers, snow showers, and
some thunderstorms. A few to several inches of snow accumulation
will be possible in the mountains, as well as a few inches at lower
elevations near the Colorado border Thursday night. The potential
exists for north wind gusts up to 45 mph with a back door cold front
on the far eastern plains Friday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
