ARE INDICATING THAT A BAND OF SNOW MAY SET UP OVER THE AREA AROUND
MIDNIGHT THEN TAPER OFF BY SUNRISE. A QUICK DUSTING TO 1 INCH OF
SNOWFALL IS POSSIBLE...WITH THE BEST CHANCE OVER THE FOOTHILLS OF
ALBUQUERQUE...SANTA FE...AND PLACITAS. THE COMBINATION OF COLD
TEMPERATURES AND GUSTY WINDS MAY CREATE A BRIEF PERIOD OF SLICK
TRAVEL DURING THE MONDAY MORNING COMMUTE.
