Difficult driving conditions will be likely across western and central NM due to rain/snow showers coupled with strengthening winds today. Slick roadways along I-40 and other highways across western and central this morning. Blowing snow reducing visibility at higher elevations across the Sangre's and Sacramento's could also produce hazardous driving conditions this morning.
Strong to severe winds will buffet much of northern and central New Mexico today through the early evening. Occasional gusts of 50 to 70 mph will be possible with the most severe gusts found over the central to south central mountains and highlands into the east central plains of New Mexico. Areas of blowing snow will be common in the higher elevations with widespread blowing dust expected in lower elevations.
Additional snow is expected today, primarily over north central New Mexico where a couple to a few more inches of accumulation will be possible. The highest amounts will favor the northern mountains where as much as 4 to 8 inches of additional accumumulation is expected through the early evening. This will bring storm total accumulations close to a foot in some localized higher mountain areas.
Dress warm to break the cold wind chill today and Monday morning. Strong westerly winds, combined with much colder air will drop wind chills into the teens and single digits. A few spots in the west will likely dip below zero!
Temperatures will be quite cold today, but warmer temperatures are on the way for the coming work week. Temperature look to fall by Friday into next weekend when the next trough enters the intermountain west.
Yesterday's observed high and low temperatures, and precipitation across northern and central New Mexico.
