A warm day will lead to relatively warm temperatures tonight. A backdoor front edges closer to the northeast plains this evening. This will slowly progress into eastern New Mexico through Monday and sharply decrease temperatures. Snow accumulations will be less than an inch out east. We will watch for possible freezing rain in areas near Tucumcari. The bigger story is the low pressure slamming the northern mountains yet again tomorrow night. Heavy snow will be above 9,000’ and the snow elevation will be near 8,000’. The highest peaks could get up to 12”. The Colorado San Juans will be closer to 24”. We’ll have breezy conditions statewide Saturday night.
Snow showers will stay alive in the northern mountains through Monday. Skies will clear into Tuesday before another disturbance hits New Mexico on Wednesday.
