We are starting off once again with extremely cold temperatures across the state this morning. Some are also experiencing rough driving conditions due to freezing fog over night. Please use extreme caution if/when you venture out on the roadways this morning!
A warming trend will continue through this afternoon and we will see plenty of sunshine. This pattern will stay in place to begin the work week but our next winter storm is on the way and looks to make an appearance by Tues-Wed. Many of us will not see any activity from this storm, as it looks to pass to the south of us. The southern mountains may see snow accumulation and rain/wintry mix may be expected for the lower elevations.
The system will quickly move out and leave us with pleasant conditions until the end of the week!

Good morning and happy Saturday!
Temperatures this morning are extremely cold once again and we are even seeing a Freezing Fog Advisory in effect for the SE corner of NM. A slight warming trend will begin by this afternoon and will continue through most of next week! Expect plenty of sunshine for the next few days with breezy conditions at times.
Another wintry storm will approach the state next week but looks to pass a little to the south. As of now, we will see slight chances of rain and snow for the northern half of the state and better chances for the southern half.
Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!!

Good Sunday Morning!
Our New Year’s winter storm is still on the move and looks to arrive later today through tomorrow. Expect cloudy and mild conditions with highs reaching the 40′s in the Metro. Moisture will continue to increase throughout the day, followed by developing showers in the northern and western parts of NM.
Snow will begin by this afternoon and evening, spreading east overnight. The high elevations will see decent accumulation, while the lower elevations may see just a dusting to about 1 inch. There is currently a Winter Storm Warning in effect for the San Juan Mountains where snow accumulations of 6-10 inches will be possible.
Please keep road conditions in mind as you head out for New Year’s celebrations!!
Have a happy New Year!

Good morning and happy Saturday!
It is COLD outside this morning with wind chill factors falling to the single and negative digits in some places. Temperatures will remain chilly throughout our Saturday, with highs only reaching the upper 30′s in the Metro. The rest of our weekend will be chilly but beautiful with mostly sunny skies and a light breeze.
The next winter storm system that we are tracking looks to be making an appearance by late Sunday through Monday, New Year’s Eve. This system will bring another round of shower chances, wind and cold temperatures. Afternoon highs will remain 10-20 degrees below normal for the middle of the upcoming week.
Stay tuned for updates as the storm moves closer!

We continue to watch snow move through the northern half of the state this evening and into tonight. An upper level storm system will track to the east overnight and into Christmas morning, bringing rain/snow chances, bitter cold and high winds. Expect the wind chill factor to be intense tonight and into tomorrow morning. Temperatures will feel much colder than they really are. The most snow accumulation will be seen on the western slopes and high peaks of the Northern Mountains. Please keep in mind, when traveling, that roadways may become slick. Use extreme caution!!
We will see the snow move out of the area by tomorrow, leaving mostly clear skies and chilly temps behind. A back door cold front will bring a slight chance of showers to the NE corner of NM but widespread activity is not expected.
Our next wintry system should impact the area later this week.
Have a wonderful and safe Christmas!!
