Tropical moisture from the eastern Pacific is pushing cloud cover into southern New Mexico. These clouds will have a chance at producing light rain and snow tonight, mainly over the high terrain. On Monday evening, a flimsy low-pressure system will form and bring scattered snow across northwest New Mexico. The northern mountains will have about five hours to get some snow. Hopefully, we can squeeze out three inches for the ski resorts.
The clouds will be gone by Tuesday afternoon. Wednesday will bring a high pressure over the region. This will boost temperatures and bring clear skies. This weekend will be partly cloudy for most areas. There is a chance of mountain snow on Saturday night.
