Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
1044 AM MST Sat Dec 3 2016

An upper level low pressure area is located over the state of
Sonora, Mexico. Subtropical moisture ahead of this low is still
spreading northward into New Mexico aiding in the development
of scattered areas of rain and snow and a mix of rain and snow
over southern and eastern parts of the Land of Enchantment. Most
snowfall recorded overnight has been light with accumulations of
less than an inch or so. The exception is over the southern mountains
where up to four inches of snow fell overnight. Low temperatures
ranged from the single digits to lower 20s over the north and west
and over the Estancia valley and south central mountains to the
the mid 20s to mid 30s over the middle to lower Rio Grande and San
Francisco river valleys and over the east to southeast plains.

As the upper level low pressure area moves further south into the
Mexican state of Sinaloa and a ridge of high pressure starts to
build in over New Mexico today and tomorrow, skies will be gradually
clearing from the north with the chance of precipitation diminishing.
Additional snow accumulations of up to three inches are possible
over and near the Sacramento and Capitan mountains today with less
than an inch possible through this evening over lower terrain in
the south and east. Afternoon high temperatures today will range
from the mid 20s to 30s over higher terrain to the 40s to lower
50s over lower terrain.
