Kristen's Thursday Morning Forecast

Winter storm moves in...

December 6th 2018 - Thursday will start mostly quiet with just some cloud cover and chilly temps (20s, 30s and 40s). An approaching winter storm will result in increasing clouds throughout the day before eventually showers developing over western and northern NM Thursday evening. These showers will be in the form of low elevation rain and high mountain snow... spreading east into the state overnight into Friday. An incoming backdoor cold front moving in from the northeast will knock down afternoon highs in the east.

Friday looks to be a busy day of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow. Wintry mix showers will favor eastern NM with ice accumulation of up to 1/10" possible. Snow will favor the high country with significant accumulation above 8000ft. Lower elevations of central, western and southern NM will be favored for rain. Afternoon highs will remain in the 40s and 50s for most.

We'll likely see a transition to all snow late Friday into Saturday. Driving conditions will be hazardous across eastern NM due to potential for ice underneath a blanket of snow.

WINTER STORM WATCH in effect for a good portion of east-central and southeast NM beginning Friday morning through Saturday morning. Threats: ice up to 1/10" and snowfall exceeding 4".

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY in effect for San Juans of southern Colorado beginning 6PM Thursday through 9AM Friday. Threats: 4"-8" of snow
