MONDAY: Lingering rain and snow continues to fall across the Northern Mountains and Eastern Plains this afternoon, helped by a cold front pushing in from the northeast. Spotty to scattered rain showers will continue through the day with snow expected up in the higher elevations of the Northern and East Mountains. Higher terrain of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains could pick up an additional 5-10inches on top of what was accumulated over the weekend. Winds will pick up by late afternoon with sustained speeds +20mph for central and eastern NM.
TUESDAY: A few spot showers are possible over the Four Corners area, although, coverage will be very limited. For the majority of the state, warmer temps & drier conditions will settle in with mostly to partly sunny conditions state-wide.
MIDWEEK: Afternoon temperatures will jump back into the 70s in the Albuquerque-metro area with mostly clear skies state-wide. High pressure will build back in over the state – keeping away the rain and snow for the rest of the work week.
