Moderate winds are expected to impact travel along U.S. 84/285 from the Colorado border to Santa Fe and State Highways 64/87 from Cimarron to Clayton, along with other highways in the central and southern part of the state.  High winds will impact travel on Interstate 40 from Tijeras to the Texas border and State Highway 285 from Santa Fe to Roswell.
