The Jemez Mountains have received a couple inches of the white stuff and Los Alamos has received dusting so far in November.
This weekend and on through Monday, Mother Nature may get serious.
Los Alamos is due for its first official significant snowfall. According to Kerry Jones, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office based in Albuquerque, Los Alamos is due for several inches of snow throughout the weekend, and it could start as early as Friday morning.
Though he stressed Los Alamos does not have much to worry about beyond taking the usual precautions with snowfall, the snow is the result of a much larger and dangerous storm that will be heading through the eastern plains of the state.
“I would say the greatest window for Los Alamos is late Saturday and into Sunday for the most widespread potential for snow,” he said, adding the Pajarito ski area could see as much as a foot.
In a recent teleconference, Jones stated areas along Interstate 40 will see the biggest impact, especially in Curry and Roosevelt counties, with ice on the roadways thicker than a tenth of an inch being possible.
