WEATHER SUMMARY FOR NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NM
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
620 PM MST SUN MAR 1 2015

DRIER AND WARMER AIR MOVE OVER SOUTHWESTERN AND CENTRAL PORTIONS
OF NEW MEXICO...OFFERING CLEARER SKIES AND HIGHER
TEMPERATURES...IF NOT A LITTLE BREEZY IN SOME AREAS. THIS FETCH OF
DRY AIR PUSHED MUCH OF THE SHOWER ACTIVITY TO FAR NORTHERN NEW
MEXICO BY THE AFTERNOON...GIVING MOST AREAS A BIT OF A REPRIEVE. DUE
TO THE WARMTH AND SUBLIMATION...MOST OF THE SNOW IN THE
ALBUQUERQUE METRO AREA DISAPPEARED THIS AFTERNOON AND BECAME JUST
A FAINT MEMORY. MOST OF THE EASTERN PLAINS WAS NOT AS LUCKY AS THE
NEAR SURFACE COLD POOL HELD STRONG AND KEPT LOW CLOUDS AND FOG
OVER THE AREA. THIS DICHOTOMY WAS EXEMPLIFIED WITH A HIGH OF 59
DEGREES IN CLINES CORNERS AND A HIGH OF 34 DEGREES JUST 115 MILES
EAST IN TUCUMCARI. SOME OTHER NOTABLE HIGHS TODAY INCLUDE 31
DEGREES IN CLAYTON...39 DEGREES IN ROSWELL...46 DEGREES IN
FARMINGTON...55 DEGREES IN SANTA FE...AND 68 DEGREES IN GLENWOOD.

A BACKDOOR COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH THE EASTERN PLAINS TONIGHT
AND REINFORCE THE COLD AIR IN THE AREA. LIGHT SHOWERS WILL DEVELOP
AROUND THE FRONT...FALLING AS EITHER SNOW...FREEZING RAIN...OR A
RAIN SNOW MIX. THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS WILL CONTINUE TO SEE PERIODS
OF HEAVY SNOW...ESPECIALLY IN THE SAN JUAN MOUNTAINS. OVERNIGHT
LOWS WILL RANGE FROM THE 20S ACROSS NORTHERN AND NORTHEASTERN NEW
MEXICO TO THE 30S AND LOWER 40S ACROSS SOUTH CENTRAL AND
SOUTHWESTERN NEW MEXICO.
