Cold Tonight With A Chance Of Light Snow.


Winter Storm Bearing Down On The State.




An upper-level disturbance is located over northwestern Mexico and southern Arizona this afternoon. This approaching wave of energy is helping to generate an expanding area of snow across New Mexico this afternoon. Areas of snow are forecast to continue to increase and spread northward and southward across the state into tonight and tomorrow morning as this disturbance moves across central and southern New Mexico.

This disturbance is moving much further south than the models had originally forecast. It will be interesting to watch what happens across our local area tonight...many times in the past I've seen these types of storms end up producing more snow over a wider area than the models indicate. So do not be surprised tomorrow morning if you wake up with snow...possibly more than what is being forecast.

Light snow flurries have occurred off and on through the day across parts of southeastern New Mexico. Current radar images show that snow is increasing across the area and will continue to do so throughout the night. Current forecasts indicate that only a dusting up to perhaps an inch of snowfall will occur over most of southeastern New Mexico tonight into tomorrow morning. Again I would not be surprised to see some of us end up with more than this. 

A Freezing Fog Advisory continues in effect for Eddy County through 5 AM MST tomorrow morning. Areas of dense Freezing Fog will drop the visibility down to less than 1/4 of a mile at times. Watch for icy spots on local roadways tonight into tomorrow morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory continues in effect for the southern Sacramento Mountains through 11 AM MST Thursday morning. Locals above 7,000' can expect to see at least 3" - 5" of new snowfall.

A Winter Weather Advisory continues in effect for the northern Sacramento Mountains, northern and central New Mexico, and eastern New Mexico through 8 AM MST tomorrow morning. New snowfall totals of 1" - 3" below 7,000' are expected in these areas, and 3" - 5" above 7,000'.
