ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Hazardous high wind is expected across much of eastern New Mexico, and authorities are advising boaters to postpone recreational activities and drivers of high-profile vehicles to delay travel.

The National Weather Service says winds of 35-45 mph with gusts of 60-70 mph will create hazardous conditions Tuesday.

The weather service says the most intense winds are expected along and south of Interstate 40 from near Albuquerque to the Texas line.

Dangerous cross winds are forecast along Interstate 25, U.S. 285 between Santa Fe and Roswell and along U.S. 54 from Logan in northeastern New Mexico through Santa Rosa to Carrizozo in south-central New Mexico.

A winter storm warning is in effect in parts of northern New Mexico, including Chama and Taos.
