You Wanted Winter Weather - Here It Comes!

Our second winter storm of the week will enter western New Mexico late tonight and swing eastward across the state on Thursday. Winter weather conditions will spread eastward across the state late tonight, ending Thursday evening.

Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories continue for much of western, northern, and northeastern New Mexico as well as the central and south-central mountains. 

A High Wind Warning remains in effect for the Guadalupe Mountains of Eddy County, and Culberson County in West Texas. West winds will become sustained at 30 to 50 mph with gusts near 70 mph late Thursday morning through Thursday evening.

Heavy snow will fall over the northern mountains of the state late tonight into Thursday evening with 10" to 14" above 8,000' forecast. 4" to 8" of snow are forecast to fall below 8,000'. 

Areas of the state covered by the Winter Weather Advisories are expecting to see 2" to 5". 

Gusty winds will create areas of blowing snow and low visibilities making travel difficult and dangerous.

Sacramento & Capitan Mountains.

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect from 5 AM through % PM MST on Thursday for the Cloudcroft and Ruidoso areas. Snow is forecast to start falling early Thursday morning and end by Thursday evening. The Ruidoso area is forecast to get 2" to 4"

Ski Apache is forecast to get 9" to 13" of new snowfall from Thursday's storm.

West winds gusting up to around 35 mph may create localized areas of blowing snow and low visibilities making travel difficult and dangerous. 

The Cloudcroft area is forecast to receive 3" to 5" of new snowfall. West winds gusting up to 45 mph may also create localized areas of blowing snow and low visibilities  making travel difficult and dangerous. 

Wind chill values will drop down between 0F and 5F except at the higher elevations such as Ski Apache and Sunspot will wind chill values will drop down to as low as -5F in the 50 to 55 mph westerly wind gusts. 

Southeastern Plains.

Low clouds and fog are forecast to develop later tonight with areas of drizzle and light freezing drizzle continuing into the morning then changing over to light rain showers. 

A mix of rain and snow showers is forecast for the local area on Thursday with little to no snow accumulations. Snow levels will briefly drop down to valley floors Thursday morning then rise up to around 5,000' during the day. 

A significant winter storm looks to impact most of the state Sunday night into at least Monday. Many areas of New Mexico will see snow from this potent winter storm especially the mountains where heavy snow is expected. Significant travels impacts may occur in many locations. More on this later. 

Thursday will be active weather-wise across the state and local area from this fast hitting incoming winter storm. I can't possibly cover all of the details so please check you favorite weather info source or my weather web page often to stay abreast of the latest changes and conditions

  1. Somehow one of the few that saw this one coming. Cloudcroft area wound up with twice the forecast amount by Friday morning.
