Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
558 PM MST Thu Dec 14 2017

A cold front that moved through New Mexico today trended high
temperatures 10 to 15 degrees colder than Wednesday. Canyon winds
on the Albuquerque east side gusted up to 40 mph behind this cold
front. There was enough wind across the area to kick up some dust
around the Rio Grande Valley. There was even some very light snow
with this weather system across the high terrain of northern New
Mexico. Folks around Chama, Tierra Amarilla, and Los Ojos picked
up a dusting to one inch of fresh snow.

Temperatures will trend warmer once again Friday and Saturday as
weak high pressure redevelops over New Mexico. A much needed bout
of rain and snow is possible Sunday and Sunday night as a potent
low pressure system approaches from the west. A return to mild and
dry weather is expected Monday through Wednesday, followed by a
possible significant change to wintry weather Thursday or Friday.
