Watches & Warnings

High Wind Watch
Issued: 4:14 AM MST Dec. 12, 2018 – National Weather Service

... High wind watch remains in effect from this evening through
Thursday afternoon...

* location... much of eastern New Mexico, including the Raton
ridge/Johnson Mesa, far northeast Highlands, Union, Harding,
Quay, Curry, and Roosevelt counties, as well as the Chaves
County plains.

* Winds... sustained at 35 to 45 mph from the north and northwest
with occasional gusts to 60 mph. Gusts could even approach 70
mph in parts of northeastern New Mexico.

* Timing... winds will increase this evening as a cold front
slides southward. Winds will likely reach peak intensity during
the frontal passage, but will remain strong to damaging into the
day Thursday, gradually relaxing toward sunset.

* Visibility... light snow will accompany the frontal passage,
and areas of blowing snow will reduce visibility to less than
a mile at times.

* Local impacts... strong cross winds are expected on both west-
to-east oriented and southwest-to-northeast oriented roads,
and difficult driving conditions are anticipated, especially
for high profile vehicles. Gusts in excess of 60 mph could
produce damage to some trees and structures.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Remember, a high wind watch means conditions are favorable for a
potentially damaging high wind event in and close to the watch
area. Sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph or gusts of 58 mph
or more can lead to property damage. Monitor the latest forecasts
at weather.Gov/abq, listen to NOAA Weather Radio or your favorite
media outlet.
