No White Christmas This Year.



Unless there are some major surprises with the computer model forecasts over the next couple of days it appears that this Christmas will not be white for Eastern and Southeastern New Mexico and West Texas.

A strong Winter Storm will spread rain and snow into the Desert Southwest, including the Southern Rockies Christmas Eve into Christmas Day. Western, northwestern, and parts of northern New Mexico have the best chances of seeing a White Christmas this year.

All three major computer forecast models are doing a better job now with their forecasts for lowland rain and mountain snows across New Mexico Christmas Eve into Christmas Day. Light to moderate rainfall and snowfall totals are currently forecast for just about everywhere across the state except for the eastern one-third, including the local area.

A couple inches of fresh snow (generally 1" to 3") will be possible in the Sacramento mountains Christmas Eve Day into Christmas Day. Snow levels are currently forecast to start out around 7,500' Christmas Eve Day, dropping down to around 6,000' by sunset.

We might see a few very light rain showers here in the Southeastern Plains Christmas Eve but overall not a lot of precipitation is forecast. Highs and lows Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be slightly above average for us.

There still remains the possibility of some changes with our local forecasts and I'll post another blog on this on Monday.
