12/29/2020

A wintry mix in the form of freezing rain, freezing fog, and low clouds is causing reduced visibility across portions of eastern NM this morning along with some icy and slick spots. Use caution and allow yourself extra time this morning if you're traveling in the east. Conditions will improve by mid-morning.

Otherwise, temperatures cool down across the western half of the area today behind a cold front. Light snow also continues through this afternoon across the high terrain with an additional 1-3" expected in the northern mountains. Temperatures will remain cooler through the last few days of 2020. Another system approaches NM on New Years' Day with only meager chances for snow across western and northern NM.

12/28/2020

A couple of disturbances will cross during the week ahead with snow. The first will cross from the west with snow accumulation favoring the northern and western mountains mostly Monday night and Tuesday. A second system will cross from the northwest during the latter half of the work week. At this time, the late week storm doesn't look like it will have as much moisture as the early week storm. The two systems together should hold high temperatures below normal for most of the week.

A disturbance will cross from the west Monday night and Tuesday with accumulating snow mainly in the northern and western mountains. Lower elevations of northern and western New Mexico will start with a rain/snow mix Monday evening, then precipitation will changeover to all snow there late Monday night. In addition, west and southwest wind gusts from 40-50 mph are expected along and east of the central mountain chain Tuesday. The greatest confidence for 50 mph wind gusts Tuesday is over and just east of the south central mountains.

High temperatures will warm through the weekend, before a storm system will bring a mix of rain and snow and stronger winds through mid-week. Temperatures will hover below normal through the remainder of the week, but could another storm system be on the horizon for New Year's Eve/Day?

12/25/2020

Friday 12/25 | It's a chilly and brisk morning for many over the Land of Enchantment today. Enjoy the hot cup of coffee or chocolate as temperatures are forecast to warm up compared to yesterday. Increasing clouds moving in may put a damper on that somewhat, and perhaps a few lucky spots favoring Catron and Socorro Counties will see a few sprinkles. But overall, it will remain dry today.

Increasing chances for widespread precipitation are still in the cards for Monday and Tuesday.

Temperatures will fall today behind a potent cold front. Breezy to windy conditions will persist across portions of northern and central New Mexico through the afternoon, diminishing after sunset. Windy conditions will persist into Wednesday afternoon. A cold front surging southward through the state early Wednesday will keep the increased winds continuing through the afternoon. Gusts up to 45 to 50 mph will be likely- which may cause dangerous cross winds. Temperatures will continue to warm through Christmas, reaching above normal values for most by Friday. A weak storm system on Friday will increase cloud cover, but outside of a sprinkle or flurry across the southwest, dry conditions will continue.
