DOPPLERFRIDAYThe first storm system that produced snow/rain in much of Southern New Mexico and even in Albuquerque is long gone.  But, a weaker upper-level disturbance is moving through Saturday night.   This is producing more snow around the Sacramento Mountains, and unlike Friday night, the Northern Mountains are getting in on the action.

The east slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains have the best shot to pick up 2-5″ above 7,500 feet.   Below 7,500 feet, about 1-2″ could accumulate in spots.

Cloudcroft in the Sacramento Mountains picked up almost 12″ of snow according to the National Weather Service.    The Sacramentos  could pick up an additional 2-4″ before the snow tapers off around midnight.

The entire state will start drying out by Sunday afternoon.   Stay with KRQE News 13 for more winter weather updates.
