Mark’s Tuesday evening forecast


A cold front plowing through eastern New Mexico will make for an interesting evening east of our central mountains. Temps are already sharply colder in places like Tucumcari and Clovis. Throughout the night, a little moisture behind the front will lead to a spot snow shower along the eastern slopes of the northern and east mountains. However, the better chance for measurable precip will be over east central and southeast New Mexico. Whatever falls will melt quickly Wednesday.

Our next system will pass north on Thursday. This storm will deliver some light to moderate snow over the northern high terrain. The rest of us will get a big fat dose of wind. Friday will serve as an in-between storms type of day. Then on Saturday and Sunday, a stronger storm rolls in. This system looks like a good valley rain maker and a good mountain snow maker. Check out the European model snow estimate – could be a foot plus over northern areas by Monday.
