RAIN AND HIGHER ELEVATION SNOW SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE
LATE AFTERNOON OVER PORTIONS OF NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO. SNOW
LEVELS ARE EXPECTED TO GENERALLY HOVER BETWEEN 6500 AND 7500 FEET
WITH A FEW HUNDREDTHS OF AN INCH OF RAIN FALLING BELOW AND
A DUSTING OF FRESH SNOW AT HIGHER ELEVATIONS. VISIBILITIES MAY
TEMPORARILY REDUCE TO LESS THAN A MILE IN ANY PASSING SHOWERS...AND
SOME SLICK SPOTS MAY PERSIST ON HIGHER TERRAIN ROADS. AREAS THAT ARE
EXPECTED TO SEE THE GREATEST IMPACTS FROM SNOW WILL INCLUDE THE
NORTHERN PEAKS OF NEW MEXICO WITH LESS IMPACTS FARTHER SOUTH. IN
ADDITION...STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS WILL PREVAIL WITH SOME GUSTS
REACHING 35 TO 45 MPH. THIS WILL CREATE SOME BLOWING SNOW IN THE
HIGHER ELEVATIONS AND STRONG CROSS WINDS ON SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST
ORIENTED ROADS.
