The overhanging jet stream is going to bring strong winds into New Mexico. Most low-lying areas will have winds gusting up to 40 mph. The central mountain chain and eastern plains will get pounded the hardest with wind gusts up to 70 mph. This storm has just enough moisture to give one or two inches to the eastern plains before sunrise on Thursday. This normally wouldn’t be a big deal but blowing snow can be dangerous in any magnitude.
Winds will slowly die down Thursday, and we’ll be left with our coldest day of the week. No major storms are on tap. This weekend will bring seasonable temperatures and partly cloudy skies. A Baja low will cross into the region on Monday. This will probably just bring some cloud cover and a few passing showers.
