Temperatures will fall into the the upper teens to the mid 20's tonight into sunrise tomorrow morning. High temps on Tuesday across the local area will range from near 20°F in Clovis, to the upper 20's to near 31°F across the rest of the local area. Wind chill values will drop down into the teens tonight and the single digits Tuesday. Wind chill values will drop down into the single digits and near zero Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Below zero wind chill values will occur in the mountains.

As the arctic air pushes up against the central mountain chain Tuesday and Tuesday night an east canyon high wind event will develop. These winds are forecast to gust up to around 45-55 mph in the Albuquerque Metro area Tuesday into Tuesday night. Wind chill's will drop down to near zero in the Albuquerque area. 

Brutal and dangerous wind chills will exists across far northeastern New Mexico in Union and Colfax Counties Tuesday and Tuesday night with readings as low as -25°F. The rest of northeastern and eastern New Mexico will experience wind chills from -15°F to 0°F.

Wintry Mix.

Valid @ 5 PM MST Friday, January 2, 2015.

A mix of light snow, freezing drizzle and or light freezing rain, and sleet will occur off and on over the area Tuesday into Thursday. Depending upon the exact track of the upper level low to our west, a heavy snow event still looks possible later this week. Especially Wednesday night into Friday. There is the potential for significant snows in the mountains and across the east-central and southeastern plains of New Mexico Thursday into Friday. 

Dangerous to difficult driving conditions are expected across the area tomorrow into Friday due the combination of cold temperatures, dangerously cold wind chill values, and the mixed wintry precipitation.
