The rain and Northern Mountain snow will fill in overnight Sunday into early Monday morning.

Areas above 8,000 feet in the Northern Mountains will pick up 3-6″ with some isolated higher totals at the peaks. The Northern Mountains of New Mexico are under a Winter Weather Advisory from Monday night into early Tuesday.
