Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
528 PM MST Wed Dec 13 2017

Mild and sunny weather impacted New Mexico once again today. High
temperatures warmed 5 to 10 degrees above normal for mid December.
Very low dewpoints with these mild temperatures lowered humidity
values to between 10 and 15%, giving good reason to go looking for
your lip balm and some hand lotion. Clear skies, light winds, and
very dry air will lead to another night of strong inversions with
cold morning low temperatures.

A strong cold front will arrive Thursday and trend temperatures
closer to normal. Breezy winds will make conditions feel even
colder. A weak low pressure behind this front will increase the
chances for light rain and snow over northern New Mexico Thursday
afternoon. Snow chances will shift southward along the central
mountain chain Thursday night, followed by clearing after sunrise
Friday. The greatest accumulations are expected in the Sangre de
Cristo Mountains where one to two inches is possible.
