No White Christmas This Year.
Christmas this year will not be white for the majority of New Mexico. With the exception of those mountain communities that already have snow on the ground. A mid-upper level short wave trough of low pressure will sweep across New Mexico on Wednesday. This will send a cold front southward into the state Tuesday night into Wednesday. It will also help produce a few light snow showers over the northern mountains and far northeastern plains. At this time generally, less than an inch of new snow is forecast.
High temperatures on Tuesday ahead of the approaching southward moving cold front will climb up into the low to mid 70's across the Southeastern Plains. These highs will be some 20-degrees above normal for the date. Behind the frontal passage, our highs on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day will be in the 50's. Which will be close to historical averages for the dates.
Low temperatures in Southeastern New Mexico will be seasonably chilly Christmas Eve morning with readings in the teens. Some of the normally colder mountain communities in the Sacramento's will drop down into the single digits.
