Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
712 AM MST Sun Feb 26 2017

Overnight skies were partly cloudy across the Land of Enchantment,
with warmer low temperatures so far this morning especially across
the southern lowlands. Early this morning isolated snow showers
develop in the Gallup area. Low temperatures were generally in
the teens and 20s northern mountains, and in the 20s to the 40s
elsewhere. Extremes ranged from 16 degrees at Taos to 36 degrees
at Socorro.

Skies will be mostly cloudy today across New Mexico, with isolated
rain showers and high mountain snow showers forecast along and west
of the central mountain chain as a upper level trough passes over
the region. Virga showers with gusty winds will favor the central
Rio Grande Valley today because of continued drier conditions.
Expect windy conditions today over the high mountain tops across
the state. High temperatures today will be chilly due to the
widespread cloud cover.

The next upper level Pacific storm system will impact New Mexico
Monday and Tuesday with another round of windy weather. The
strongest winds are expected across eastern areas of the state
on Tuesday where gusts up to 65 mph will be possible. Rain and
snow will slide into central and western New Mexico Monday night
and Tuesday.
