...Early Spring storm to bring rain and snow to the region mid
week...

Computer simulations indicate a Spring storm will affect the
region this week. This storm will affect the area starting
Tuesday and last into Wednesday. This storm will likely bring
heavy wet snow to the mountains and beneficial widespread rain to
the lower elevations. The heaviest precipitation with this storm
will occur from late Tuesday evening and last into Wednesday.

Travel will likely become hazardous in the mountains Tuesday night
and and last into Wednesday. Travel across I-25 across Monument
Hill and Raton Mesa may also become difficult, especially
Wednesday morning.

It will be blustery with this storm across the plains, as
northeast winds of 25 to 35 mph are expected Tuesday night and
especially Wednesday.

Some thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday afternoon across the
entire region. At this time these storms are not expected to be
severe. However, if a thunderstorm should move across one of the
many burn scars across the area, then flash flooding may develop.

Although computer simulations are in very good agreement that a
storm will track east over New Mexico, there is still uncertainty
on the storms exact track. If the storm moves east across central
New Mexico, then areas from highway 50 southward would see the
most impacts. If the storm tracks east across northern New Mexico,
then all of the region will be impacted by this storm.

Please stay tuned for later forecast updates.
