Round #2 On The Way…

February 27th, 2014 at 10:46 pm by under Weather

Our first of a one two storm punch is exiting the state now.  However, not without some excitement.  Wind gusts have topped 60mph as the storm worked through in the Albuquerque metro area.  A high wind warning is in effect for the east on Friday where gusts could hit 70 mph.  Here in the metro winds will come down to 15-25 mph with partly cloudy skies.

By Saturday a stronger and far wetter storm will work through.  It will spread valley rain and mountain snow across the northern 2/3rds of the state.  The metro areas best shot for rain will be Saturday PM through Sunday AM.  Most precip will fall as rain below 7,000′.  Although a winter mix early Sunday can’t be ruled out.

The mountains of the north look poised to pick up 12″+ of snow through Sunday night.  This would be huge for the resorts who are in desperate need of snow.  Here is a look at the liquid precip totals as the models see it through Sunday.  Impressive.
