A Winter Weather Advisoryis in effect for Eddy and Lea Counties from 8 PM tonight into 11 AM Friday. Current NWS forecasts are calling for 2" - 4" of snow for us. As always we will see a varation of snowfall totals locally depending upon the exact track and speed of our inbound storm. I find it curious that Chaves County was not included in the Advisory, nor was Otero County.

Arctic Air Settles In As Snow Pick Up Tonight.
GFS (T1534) 500 MB Analysis. Valid @ 11 AM MST This Morning.
Arctic air has settled into the eastern one half of New Mexico once again today. Low level easterly upslope flow behind the arctic cold front continues to import abundant low level moisture into the area. At the same time an upper level disturbance will dive southeastward out into New Mexico out of Utah t…

A quick update with more details posted on Thursday. Simply put its back to winter by sunrise tomorrow morning when yet another arctic cold front enters southeastern New Mexico. Once again light snow is in our forecast starting late tonight and continuing into late Friday night. After seeing the mid 60's today in southeastern New Mexico we will only see the mid-upper 30's tomorrow and we will be lucky to break the freezing mark on Friday. A very active and stormy winter pattern will affect New Mexico tonight into next week. And to quote the Albuquerque NWS Office: "Northern New Mexico Mountainous locations may be measuring their snowfall by the feet when this is all said and done next week."

Snow Tonight For Parts Of New Mexico.

RAP Temperatures @ 2 PM MST Today.
Cold air (although warming up compared to yesterday) remains entrenched over the area. Meanwhile our upper level storm was centered over central Arizona today around noontime. It is forecast to move southeast into southeastern New Mexico and West Texas tonight into tomorrow morning. A cold unstable airmass aloft will accompany this storm as it moves overhead which will interact with the low level moisture already in place. This and the lift associated with the inbound storm will help to produce snow across the area tonight into tomorrow morning. 
The short range models vary with their thinking as far as snowfall totals are concerned but generally agree that we will see the white stuff fall from the sky tonight into tomorrow morning. It appears that snowfall totals in southeastern New Mexico will range from just trace amounts to perhaps a couple of inches i…

Regional Temperatures @ 4 PM MST This Afternoon.
Note the sharp temperature contrast across the eastern one half of New Mexico verses just west of the central mountain chain. Arctic air is entrenched over the eastern plains where temps at 4 PM ranged from the single digits in northeastern New Mexico to near 30 in southeastern New Mexico. Southwest New Mexico was in the low 70's.
