A powerful spring storm will drop into northern New Mexico over the next two days. The problem is the storm won’t drop far enough south to affect most of the state. We’ll get the chance at scattered snow showers over the northern mountains both Thursday and Friday. However, heavy widespread snow even over the mountains now looks unlikely. Areas south of the northern mountains will see scattered showers at best and no real significant precipitation. As the storm slowly crawls across the state it will exit New Mexico on Saturday. The biggest impact for most of the state will be cooler temperatures and occasionally gusty winds. This is sort of a bummer given that if the storm had dropped far enough south we have been looking at a very good spring snowstorm. If this changes, we will keep you posted. As far as the forecast be on Friday, clearing skies will be the rule and warming temperatures through Sunday.
