Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
536 PM MST Fri Jan 20 2017

Scattered snow showers have been passing over the western
highlands and middle to upper Rio Grande Valley this afternoon,
and coverage will continue to increase through tonight into
Saturday. Higher snow amounts of several inches to ten plus will
favor the western slopes of the northern mountains over 8,000 feet,
with a few inches at valley bottoms. The Albuquerque metro area
will likely see a dusting to two inches by the end of Saturday.

Lows tonight will range from the upper teens to near 30 for the
northern mountains, upper Rio Grande Valley, and western
highlands and northeast plains, with 30s along the lower to
middle Rio Grande Valley and southeastern plains.

While snow will cover much of the western half of the state
tonight and most of the day Saturday, the eastern plains will see
their chance for a wintry mix over the central highlands
transitioning to rain towards the TX border later Saturday. Highs
will range from the 30s in the northern mountains and western
highlands, with 40s for the lower to middle Rio Grande Valley,
and 50s over the eastern plains. Conditions clear out Sunday into
Monday before the next winter weather system arrives Monday night
into Tuesday.
