Here It Comes…February 20th, 2013 at 2:27 pm by Mark Ronchetti under Weather
An increasingly potent storm currently over Arizona will come through New Mexico tonight bringing with it an increasing chance of snow across the northern 2/3rds of the state including the Albuquerque metro area. Here is a breakdown.
This Afternoon: With the core of the storm still over AZ jet energy with form snow showers that will push through the west and into the metro area. However, temps are too warm for much to stick. So look for wet roads but nothing more.
Tonight: The cold front and core of the storm come through. Gusty winds will crank up along the front and temps will crater down into the 20′s. This will be the time for accumulating snow in the metro. We could see 1″-3″ in the city by Thursday morning. In the northern mountains 6″-12″ will be common. Over the NE 1″-4″ will be likely and 1″-4″ possible in Santa Fe as well.
Thursday: Storm exits to the east but snow showers hold on over the NE. Much colder temps will remain in place. There will be a weaker storm quickly diving behind first storm on Friday. Snow amounts with this system will not be as impressive.
