FRIDAY EVENING: Isolated northern mountain snow showers are possible and clouds will increase across the south. Temps will cool quickly once the sun sets but most of the state will remain dry with light winds.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY: A small dip in the jet stream will tap into moisture over southern NM allowing rain & snow showers to develop after midnight. Snow levels should drop to about 5,000ft on Saturday across the south with light accumulations (1-3″) across the high terrain of the south above 6,000ft. Albuquerque will likely see an increase in cloud cover but no significant rain chances expected. Temperatures will be cooler in the south where below average high temps are expected. Temps should begin to warm Sunday for most of NM outside of the far south.
EARLY NEXT WEEK: Another small disturbance could trigger a few spotty showers in the Four Corners region late Monday into Tuesday. The majority of us further south and east can expect a quiet and mild start to the next work week. But, a big storm system may impact the state as we head into mid to late next week. Keep checking back for updates.
