Damaging Winds Today!









 We are going to pay a price for our beautiful and tranquil weather that we have been experiencing recently. A powerful upper-level trough of low pressure will swing across the state today, and drag a cold front eastward with it. This is going to result in a very windy and dusty day across the area. The fire danger will be very high today due to the continued dry conditions and the high winds. Please refrain from any type of outdoor burning or the use of fire or sparks.

Damaging winds will be a possibility in some locations today. Westerly winds are forecast to increase to sustained speeds of 30 - 50 mph with gusts around 60 -70 mph across the southeastern plains of New Mexico today. Gusts in the Guadalupe mountains are forecast to reach at least 80 mph.

Damage from these winds may occur to the following-

Fences. 
Power lines.
Roofs & Shingles.
West facing windows.
Irrigation sprinkler systems.
 Small trees may be blown down.
Large tree branches may be blown down.
Small Barns & Sheds may be blown down.

A Blowing Dust Advisory will be in effect from 11 AM - 5 PM MST. Wide spread areas of blowing dust may reduce the visibility down to less than one mile at times. The visibility will suddenly drop down to near zero with little to no advanced warning In the more dust prone locations such as- open or freshly plowed or open fields, lots, and construction sites. Travel may be significantly affected on some of our local roadways today due to the blowing dust across the lower elevations, and the blowing snow in the Sacramento mountains.

 Today and tomorrow will be cooler with highs near 50 to 55.
