...Very strong winds for Monday across area mountains and strong
winds across the lowlands...

.A mostly dry Pacific storm system will bring strong winds to the
region as it arrives on Monday. The storm will be a dry one, but
it will position strong winds aloft and a tight low-level
pressure gradient over the region. Warm temperatures and deep
mixing will help to bring strong winds aloft down to the surface.
This will mean strong southwest to west winds for most of the
day. All areas will see strong and gusty conditions in the
afternoon and early evening hours. A wind advisory is in effect
the lowlands while a high wind warning is in effect for area
mountains. Areas of blowing dust may reduce visibility across the
lowlands and even make for lower visibility across the area
mountains. Winds will slowly slacken in the hours after sunset.

...HIGH WIND WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 9 AM TO 10 PM MST

* TIMING...Southwest to west winds will begin to increase in the

  the mountains. The strongest winds are expected during the
  afternoon and early evening hours. Wind speeds will slowly
  diminish in the few hours after sunset.

* WINDS...Breezy southwest to west winds will increase from 15
  to 25 mph in the early morning hours, becoming windy to very
  windy at 35 to 45 mph with gusts over 60 mph in the afternoon
  hours.

* IMPACTS...Strong winds may bring down trees and interrupt
  power service. Strong winds will make driving difficult,
  especially for high-profile vehicles. Lofted blowing dust from
  White Sands National Monument may reduced visibilities in the
  Sacramento mountains.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A High Wind Warning means a hazardous high wind event is expected
or occurring. Sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph or gusts
of 58 mph or more can lead to property damage.

...POTENTIALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS MONDAY THROUGH MONDAY
EVENING...

.An upper level low pressure system crossing Colorado will steer
the jet stream over New Mexico on Monday with very strong west to
southwest winds. The strongest winds are expected in the south
central mountains and adjacent highlands, including Ruidoso,
where gusts up to 70 mph are possible. The west central and
southwest mountains, including Gallup, may experience gusts
around 60 mph. Strong winds are also expected in the rest of the
central mountain chain and the adjacent eastern highlands. The
strongest winds will be capable of downing power lines and trees,
and damaging weak structures. Areas of blowing dust and very
strong crosswinds will make driving hazardous with periods of
visibility reduction in dust prone locations. The strongest winds
will impact the western mountains around mid day, but not until
the afternoon in the south central mountains where strong winds
will linger into the evening.
