Precipitation will continue expanding eastward into central and western New Mexico this evening as a Pacific storm system approaches from over Arizona.
Difficult driving conditions will be likely across western and central NM due to rain/snow showers coupled with strengthening winds tonight. A flash freeze event could potentially produce slick roadways along I-40 and other highways across western and central NM tonight into Sunday morning. Blowing snow reducing visibility at higher elevations across the Sangre's could also produce hazardous driving conditions Sunday morning.
A strong Pacific cold front will move across western New Mexico this evening and across central New Mexico late this evening. Rain and a mix of rain and snow will quickly change to snow as the front moves through, and 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected in the lower elevations tonight with higher amounts in the mountains. West winds will gust to near 40 mph near and behind the front. Very strong west winds will develop across south central New Mexico late tonight with gusts greater than 50 mph possible.
Winter Weather is in-store across western and northern NM tonight through Sunday. Difficult driving conditions are likely along I-40 west of Albuquerque to the AZ border. Most of the higher snowfall totals will be focused over the northern mountains, with light accumulations in the ABQ metro, mainly in the foothils.
You will need to dress warm for work or school Monday morning. It's going to be cold!
