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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Increased moisture will lead to scattered thunderstorms this
afternoon, mainly across central to eastern New Mexico. Some storms
may turn strong to possibly severe. Brief downpours and gusty to
potentially damaging winds will be the most likely threats, but large
hail cannot be ruled out. Thunderstorms in western New Mexico will
produce little to no rainfall today, and dry lightning strikes will
pose a concern for new wildfires.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Strengthening winds will return to many areas of northern and central
New Mexico on Saturday where low humidity will also develop. This
could create a few to several hours of critical fire weather
conditions in the afternoon and early evening.


Spotters should report severe weather through the National Weather
Service Albuquerque web site or by calling 1.888.386.7637. You can
also submit storm reports and photos on our Facebook page or via
Twitter using the hashtag nmwx.
