Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
1048 AM MST Mon Jan 23 2017

An upper level disturbance moving across northern New Mexico
overnight brought partly to mostly cloudy skies and scattered
snow showers over the north to northwest and west. Several inches
of snow fell over the far northern mountains with lesser amounts
elsewhere. Overnight low temperatures ranged from the upper teens
to 20s over north central areas and over higher terrain over the
west and over the Raton and Estancia valleys. Elsewhere overnight
low temperatures were in the 30s.

Rain and higher elevation snow showers will be on the way late
this afternoon through Tuesday for all of western and central
parts of New Mexico as a cold front, currently over Arizona,
moves into the Land of Enchantment. Most precipitation will fall
over and west of the central mountain chain. Precipitation will
diminish on Tuesday as the front heads into Texas and high pressure
builds in behind the front. Total snowfall amounts through Tuesday
will range from a dusting in Albuquerque to a few inches in Santa
Fe and Gallup, to nearly a foot in places over the Sangre de Cristo
mountains and anywhere from 12 to 18 inches over the San Juan Mountains.
Afternoon high temperatures today will range from the mid 20s to mid
40s over higher elevations to the upper 40s to mid 60s over lower
elevations. The far southeast plains will see highs today in the upper
60s to lower 70s.
