Snow showers are far from over. Light snow will fall over the Raton Ridge and near Union County until 5 AM. The central mountains will keep the snow going until midnight and rack up a few more inches. Tomorrow morning will bring back the blue skies and turn up the pressure. The disturbance tonight should keep fog out of the mix for the eastern plains. On Tuesday, things should be calm enough for fog to develop near the Texas border.
Temperatures will slowly increase ahead of Thursday night’s storm. This winter storm will have an unusually high moisture content. When this collides with a series of cold fronts, we could see just about every form of precipitation in New Mexico. The biggest impacts from this storm will be freezing precipitation in the eastern plains and heavy mountain snow. The snow elevation will be relatively high at 7,000’, so the threat level in Albuquerque is low.
