Winter Again In New Mexico.
Forecast Temperatures @ 5 PM MST Today.
Winter Weather Across Much Of NM Today.
Heavy snow has already fallen across the northern New Mexico mountains. 8" of the white stuff has already accumulated 11 miles northwest of Canon Plaza which is east of Tierra Amarilla.
Radar at 5 AM MST this morning shows a large area of snow (with rain over the lower elevations of central NM) moving southeast through the state. This is in response to an upper level disturbance headed southeastward out of the Great Basin towards the state.Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories cover a good deal of New Mexico early this morning.
A Winter Storm Warning continues in effect for the southern Sacramento mountains for today. Near Blizzard conditions are forecast in the Cloudcroft area with up to 8" of snow forecast above 7,500'.
Chaves County is under a Winter Weather Advisory today and Roswell is now forecast to get 1" - 3" of snow with up to 6" in the mountains of Chaves County.
Yet another strong arctic cold front barreled into southeastern New Mexico after midnight last night. Most of us will see our afternoon high temperatures only in the 20's and 30's today. Snow will move into the area this morning and currently is forecast to end by tonight. Artesia, Hobbs, and Carlsbad may see up to an inch or two of snowfall out of this storm. That is if the approaching storm to our northwest does not dig further south than is currently forecast. Then this would mean that we could possibly get more snow which could last into Monday. Will be a close call. Monday morning low temps are forecast to be in the teens!.
