TUESDAY: Scattered snow & wintry mix showers continue to develop over northern and eastern NM this morning. An incoming cold front pushing in from the northeast will help trigger heavier snow showers as it passes. As the front approaches the ABQ-metro area, strong east canyon winds will eat away at our snow chances…but not rid them completely. Little (<1″) to no accumulation is expected in Albuquerque, however, significant snow accumulation will be found further to the north and northeast. Wintry mix showers will push south and west throughout the day before disappearing overnight. High temperatures will be down 5-15 degrees compared to Monday – expect afternoon highs to top out in the 20s and 30s throughout southern CO & northern NM / 30s and 40s across central NM / 40s and 50s scattered over eastern and southern NM.
WEDNESDAY: As our storm system clears the state, sunshine will return… and so will the warmer temperatures! Expect afternoon highs to be at or just below average for this time of year.
THURSDAY: Even warmer for most! Sunshine will blanket the state with temperatures topping out in the 40s, 50s & 60s statewide.
