A relatively weak storm system will clip the northern portion of the state overnight tonight. This will lead to a few inches of snow over the high peaks and at the resorts. We could even see a few spot showers in the metro areas. However, they won’t be significant enough to worry about. Skies will quickly clear for Wednesday and Thursday with temps rising significantly. We could top 70° here in the metro area by Thursday.
Friday will signify big time changes. It is looking more and more likely that another powerful storm will drop into NM for Friday night and Saturday. This storm could well deliver more rain for valley areas and snow for the mountains. The European model has been jumping on this possible scenario for a few days now. Take a look at the liquid precip possibility through the weekend. It looks great no doubt!

4. Internationally, eyes are on Ukraine today and what Russia’s military is doing there. Secretary of State John Kerry is in Kiev to remind Ukraine’s government the United States is behind it. The White House says Russia faces serious repercussions if its military does not stay away from Ukraine.

A weak storm system will pass to our north on Tuesday. The only real impact from this system will be some snow showers over the northern mountains. Here in the metro area we will see clouds increase on Tuesday but little else will impact the metro weather wise. By Wednesday skies clear statewide and sunny skies rule through Thursday with warming temps.
The action ramps up again toward the weekend. Models are currently at odds with what track a weekend system will take. The European model is definitely more favorable for NM to see significant rain and snow. Take a look at the European track. It drops far enough into the state to lead us to believe this could be another good state precip maker. Stay tuned more details at we get closer.
