Ridiculous forecasts for the first week of April I agree, but not unheard of. On April 6, 1983 Artesia, New Mexico recorded 7" of snow on the ground and I measured 9" in Lakewood. Time will tell if last nights run of the GFS model is pure fantasy or reality.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!

  1. Originally from Denver, I figured you were talking about the western great plains, but further north. That's a bullseye on Lubbock! And Abq gets in on it! (maybe it will stay east of the mountains this far out?)

  2. The 7" in Artesia and your 9" snow are amazing, and probably a similar set-up? Those maps imply an upslope flow setting up behind a polar front. I always hear about the 12"+ snows during 2 different Aprils by native El Pasoans...looking for online photos of that.

  3. That was one amazing spring storm, not soon to be forgotten either. A heavy wet snow fell over a broad swath of southern NM & W TX.

    I have heard similar stories about the Northeast Heights of El Paso getting 18" to 24" out of that storm. If memory serves me correctly the airport picked up about 16" from that storm.

    Would love to see your photos if you come across some of them.
