Valid At 11 PM MST Thursday Evening.

As of midnight last night a slow moving and powerful closed upper level low was located over northern Arizona.

US GFS 500 Millibar (18,000') Forecast.

Valid At 5 PM MST Today.

 This winter storm is forecast to continue sinking slowly southward and by sunset this evening it will be located over central Arizona.

US GFS 500 Millibar (18,000') Forecast.

Valid At 5 PM MST Saturday.

By sunset Saturday it is forecast to be located just south of Tuscon, Arizona in northwestern Mexico. This location and slow movement is ideal for New Mexico to get clobbered with heavy snowfall.

US GFS 500 Millibar (18,000') Forecast.

Valid At 5 PM MST Sunday, December 30, 2018.

Sunset Sunday evening finds this model placing the storm just southwest of El Paso, Texas in northern Mexico. This low will then begin a slow lift out to the east and northeast as it opens ups and weakens. Remember the placement, timing, speed, and track of these closed/cutoff upper level lows is a key factor in how winter storms affect New Mexico and nearby areas. This one looks almost like a perfect snow maker...it would be if it had a little more moisture to work with.


Valid Today Through 5 AM MST Monday, December 31, 2018.

Much of New Mexico, parts of Arizona, southern Colorado, and West Texas will get hammered with heavy snowfall from our current winter storm located in northern Arizona this Friday morning at sunrise. I chose the WPC's worst case scenario forecast graphic (above) to show this. Some locations will receive less snowfall than this graphic shows while others will end up getting more. This is pretty typical with winter storms in New Mexico.

(Updated At 9:20 PM MST).


Difficult driving conditions are now noted on US HWY 285 north of Carlsbad from Lakewood north through Artesia and north to mile marker #88 or the Hagerman turn off south of Roswell at 9:20 PM MST. 

US Highway 82 is now closed in both directions from Alamogordo to Cloudcroft due to severe winter weather conditions. 

Parts of I-40 are also closed as of 9:40 AM MST between Albuquerque and Tucumcari due to severe winter weather conditions and stuck vehicles. 

US Hwy 70 from Ruidoso Downs west to Tularosa is closed due to snow packed and icy roads.

As of 2 PM MST 1" of snow is reported to be on the ground in Artesia and Hope.

A whopping 22.5" of snow is reported on the ground in midtown Ruidoso! 


Valid At 5 AM MST This Friday Morning.

Significant travel problems are already ongoing across much of New Mexico as of 5 AM this morning. This will only become more widespread with worsening conditions as the day unfolds. By tonight there is a strong possibility that many roads and highways could get shutdown if not before due to the heavy snowfall, icy conditions, blowing and drifting snow with whiteout conditions.

As I mentioned yesterday if you don't have to travel today into at least Saturday then please don't. Life threatening conditions are already occurring on some of our roads especially in the mountains and this is only going to get worse with time. If you venture out onto our roadways and highways especially into open and rural areas during this Major Winter Storm then you very well could be putting your life and others at risk!







Updated At 2:18 PM MST Friday.
Now Until 11 AM MST Saturday Morning.

Periords of whiteout conditions with the heavy to very heavy snowfall combined with the east canyon wind gusts of 50 mph will make travel impossible in some locations!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There may be additional watch and warnings changes today into Saturday along with changes in our forecasts. This is a complicated, messy, and very powerful winter storm that is impacting the state and is also very slow moving. The longer it lingers to our west and southwest the more of its impacts will be felt. Please check my weather web page often for the latest forecasts, watches, warnings, special weather statements, current conditions, radar and more.

(As Of 8 AM MST This Friday Morning).
