Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
707 AM MDT Sat Mar 25 2017
Storm total snowfall totals included 22" at Ski Santa Fe, 20" at
Taos Ski area, 16" 4 miles SW Eagle Nest, and numerous other
northern mountain locations ranging between 4 to 8 inches. The
low pressure system that impacted our region has moved over the
central plains, and a high amplitude ridge has slid over NM today.
This will allow for mostly sunny skies today, with highs ranging
from 50s and 60s in the northern mountains, with 60s and 70s at
lower elevations. Lows Sunday morning will bottom out in the 20s
and 30s in the northern mountains and western highlands, with 30s
and 40s at lower elevations.
The next Pacific trough will skirt northern NM, and souther CO
Sunday bringing a chance for high elevation, northern mountain
snow showers. The rest of NM will experience fairly breezy
conditions. Monday will see fairly sunny skies and calm conditions
before another more potent system enters the region Tuesday and
Wednesday. Forecast uncertainty with this system highly depends on
its track. Stay up-to-date over the weekend as the forecast for
Tuesday and Wednesday evolves and gains more confidence.
