A two-part storm system will head into New Mexico over the next five days. Part number one enters the state on Friday. There’s not a great deal of moisture with this first storm so we are likely to only see scattered showers. Most of those showers to be centered over northern and western portions of the state. Given how dry we are the metro area, we will probably only see some dry storms.
We will be in between storm systems on Saturday and then the action really ramps up on Sunday. A powerful storm will drop down into New Mexico from the Pacific Northwest. The storm has a lot of moisture and cold air with it. We’re likely to see mountain snow and valley rain showers. Mountain areas could pick up 6+ inches of snow with many Valley sections getting meaningful rain. The rain will continue into Monday across the east side of the state before the storm exits on Tuesday.
