MONDAY: A chilly start to the day with morning temperatures in the single digits, teens and 20s across southern CO, northern and central NM – 30s found further south. Afternoon temperatures will warm into the 30s, 40s and 50s statewide. We’ll start the day with a lot of sunshine and a handful of high clouds, but increasing clouds and better snow chances will fill in by this evening. Portions of the Northern Mountains (eastern slopes in particular), Northeast Plains and east-central NM will be favored for accumulating snow – 1″-4″ for the lower elevations while mountain areas could pick up upwards of +4″. Our best window for moderate accumulating snow will overnight into early Tuesday.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY in effect for parts of the Northern Mountains (eastern slopes), Northeast Plains and east-central NM beginning 5PM Monday through 12PM Tuesday.
TUESDAY: We’ll likely start the day with lingering snow showers along and east of the Central Mountains. Elsewhere, we begin the day with a mix of sun and clouds and cold temperatures. Showers will clear from north to south throughout the day while afternoon temperatures will continue to fall – Albuquerque-metro area expected to fall below average in the low 40s.
WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY: High pressure building over the area will squash any hope of significant rain and snow in the Land of Enchantment. Sunshine and climbing temperatures will be the trend each and every day through the end of the
