Strong to potentially damaging winds with peak gusts of 65 mph are forecast for most areas today, especially along and east of the Rio Grande Valley this afternoon. Rapid fire spread will be possible in critical fire weather conditions through eastern NM near the TX border. Blowing snow in the northern mountains and blowing dust across the eastern plains will be produce low visibility. Dangerous crosswinds on N-S highways will increase risk of rollovers for high profile vehicles as well.
Snow, heavy at times, will continue above approximately 7,500-8,000 feet today in northern areas of New Mexico. Light snow accumulations are also forecast for the west-central mountains. Strong to severe winds will create blowing and drifting snow that could produce blizzard-like and occasional white-out conditions.
A Red Flag Warning has been issued for eastern New Mexico, and this means, take action! Red Flag Warnings are issued when critical fire weather (dry and windy conditions) are ongoing or about to happen. A Red Flag Warning is your notification to avoid outdoor burning, and avoid any activities that may produce a spark.
Very strong to damaging west winds will make for an unpleasant Tuesday. This means there will be a risk of blowing objects such as lawn furniture, trash and recycling bins. Additionally, blowing dust is expected to create areas of blowing dust and reduce visibilities on area roads. Rapid fire spread is also possible due to low relative humidity and very strong west wind.
Strong to very strong winds will return to much of northern and central New Mexico again today. This table shows the timing of the strongest winds for several select New Mexico communities.
