612 PM MST Fri Dec 2 2016
Skies were mostly cloudy today over the Land of Enchantment with
several locations reporting light snow or snow flurries. Todays
high temperatures only reached the 30s and 40s across the region
with a few locations in the south reporting low 50s. Easterly flow
associated with a backdoor cold front brought gusty gap winds to
the middle Rio Grande valley with gusts of 35 mph today. Winds will
subside after midnight tonight. Low temperatures tonight will be
in the single digits and teens in the north and west to the 20s
and low 30s in the south and east.
Conditions deteriorate tonight as a wintry mix of precipitation
enters the east central plains. Expect snow and spotty rain early,
turning to widespread snow after midnight, mixed with light sleet
and freezing drizzle.
Saturday expect temperatures to be 5 to 15 degrees below average
with precipitation likely south and east, and accumulating snow
over higher terrain. By Sunday the slow moving low will have
moved to our southeast, and precipitation chances will diminish
rapidly throughout the day.
