Snowfall Below Average In The NM Sacramento Mtn's.



A thin ribbon of snow cover is draped across the highest ridges of the Sacramento mountains as seen in the visible satellite image above yesterday. Snowfall totals for the 2013-2014 winter season (Oct 2014 - April 2014) are below normal so far. You know its bad when some stations in the southeastern plains have picked up as much snow as Ruidoso so far this season. The long-range outlook does not look very promising either.
