MONDAY: A few pockets of light snow continue to fade over the southern Sangre de Cristo and Sacramento Mountains. Very cold temperatures will be found statewide with the majority of us waking up to temperatures near to below freezing under a mostly to partly sunny sky. Another piece of the storm series will arrive later this afternoon, bringing in another round of light to moderate snow over western and northern NM. Higher elevations will be favored for another few inches of accumulating snow. The Albuquerque-metro area may see light snow by this evening… but accumulation will be light (~1″) if anything at all. Breezy to windy conditions will be found over central and eastern NM with the strongest winds found over the Plains and east slopes of the higher terrain (sustained: 25-35mph / gusts: 45-55mph)
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY in effect for west-central and northwest NM beginning 2PM Monday through 5AM Tuesday. Accumulation: 2″-5″ with higher amounts possible over higher elevations and west-facing slopes.
WIND ADVISORY in effect for east-central, south-central NM and east-facing slopes of Northern & Central Mtns beginning 10AM Monday through 6PM Monday. Sustained winds: 25-35mph / gusts: up to 55mph.
