Mark’s Tuesday Evening Weather Report

A Storm Closes In...

nm weather

We will have one more warm and dry day before everything changes on Thursday. Highs tomorrow will top out in the low 60s with mostly sunny skies. The only issue throughout the day will be very gusty winds over northern and eastern New Mexico where wind gusts could top 40 mph.

Throughout the day on Thursday a powerful cold front will roll through eastern New Mexico. At the same time abroad trough will set up to our west in Arizona and Southern California. The combination of these two features will funnel a lot of moisture into New Mexico.  Many areas may will start off with some rain before changing over to rain and snow. Mountain areas of the state could tally well over a foot of snow by the time all of this comes down late in the weekend. The combination of deep moisture and a long duration storm should make for impressive snow totals over the high terrain.

The metro area will be close as far as snow goes. Temperatures won’t be super cold.  But they may be just cold enough to supports snow. We do have to worry about a gusty east wind late Thursday and Friday which could of course lead to the legendary and lame Albuquerque snow hole.  Stay tuned!
