Winter Weather Advisories have been posted for much of Central New Mexico until Monday afternoon. Snow will increase in coverage overnight making for tough travel in parts of the state. Valley locations will pick up about 1-2″ and the mountains could get 2-5″ with some isolated higher totals. Not only will this system bring snow, but bone chilling temperatures as well. Temperatures will drop even further on Monday and many areas will be waking up to temperatures below zero or even in the single digits on Tuesday.
Winter Storm Warnings continue for the San Juans of Northern New Mexico & Southern Colorado along with a Winter Weather Advisory for the northwest. Areas around Farmington and Gallup could pick up 3-6″ while the northern mountains could get 8-12″
This storm is tracking further to the north so snow chances are limited for Albuquerque, the East Mountains, and much of Eastern New Mexico. High winds will be the bigger concern for these areas. Winds will be gusting from 45-55 mph as the storm system passes to our north.
Another system heads our way on Monday. It’ll bring a small chance for a few snow showers over the mountains on Monday, but it’ll mainly usher in more cold air for the state as temps will dip even further to begin the week! Stay warm!
A couple of cold fronts are going to give us a 1, 2 punch later this week. But, before the fronts arrive temperatures will be climbing well above average for much of the state. However, along with warmer than normal temps will come some very strong, gusty winds by Tuesday ahead of our first cold front. Winds will be gusting from 40-50 mph at times especially along the high terrain.
By Wednesday, temperatures begin to drop off and the chance for snow increases around the Northern Mountains and the high terrain of Western New Mexico. Then on Thursday a second front rolls into the Northeast. This will bring even colder temperatures into the state and a better shot for snow by Thursday night and Friday. We’ll keep you posted.
It has been a great holiday weekend weather-wise! Temperatures have been rebounding to seasonable highs or even slightly above average after very cold mornings. More of the same is on the way for the next few days before changes head our way later next week.
Winds will be picking up in parts of the state on Sunday. Most areas will experience winds sustained from 10-20 mph out of the west, northwest. Dry conditions will prevail for Monday and Tuesday. It won’t be until Wednesday night when a cold front will start ushering in some changes.
Right now, the models disagree on how much moisture will be available for the storm system. But, there is a chance for some mountain snow and valley rain by Thursday. Temperatures will also take a dive and they’ll be well below average for afternoon highs by the end of the upcoming week. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
After a great Thanksgiving weatherwise, more sunshine and mild temperatures will be on the way for the next few days. Dry, westerly flow has taken control of our weather and it’ll continue for much of the holiday weekend. Temperatures will continue to climb above average over the next few days, but it will still be chilly overnight. Some clouds may try and develop over the state for Friday and the weekend. So outside of some clouds, it’ll be nice for anything you have planned for the rest of the holiday weekend. But, by next week we’ll watch a possible storm system head our way. This storm could bring a HUGE drop in temps and more snow for the mountains. Stay tuned! In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the holiday!
