Mark’s weather report

Two storms crossing the state over the next three days will keep showers and winds cranked up across the area. The first system will pass overnight. The focus for most of the showers will be over the southern half of the state. However, some scattered showers will be possible in the metro area through Wednesday morning.

During the day Wednesday the big story will be wind. Gusts across the state could top 50 mph. Widespread wind advisories are in place. Late tomorrow snow will develop over the northern mountains above 8,000′. In the Colorado San Juan Mountains 12″ of snow is possible. There is a winter storm watch in place there. Meanwhile the mountains of northern New Mexico will pick up 3″-6″ above 8,500′ by Thursday morning.

Look for winds to continue on Thursday with the second storm exiting. Winds could once again top 50 mph in spots across eastern NM. Another weaker disturbance will kick through Friday with breezy conditions but little in the way of showers. Here is a look at the liquid precip we expect out of these storms.
