Storm moves into N.M.

-A A +A

This system will be warmer and stronger than last week’s system

By The Staff

A moist upper-level storm system gathering strength over the Lower Colorado River Valley of Arizona/southeast California and points south Tuesday evening will slowly progress eastward overnight into early Wednesday, eventually crossing New Mexico Wednesday Night into early Thursday.  

Valley rain and mountain snow will develop across much of south-central and southwest New Mexico between midnight and daybreak Wednesday,  before spreading northward into Central and Northern New Mexico during the afternoon Wednesday.

Widespread precipitation will continue into Wednesday night and Thursday, especially across the southeast half of New Mexico.  

Although this system will be quite moist,  it will be considerably warmer than the strong system that rolled through last week.  As a result,  the heaviest snows and greatest impact to travel will be found across the high terrain of the southern and central mountain ranges, though significant amounts are likely across northern sections as well.  

There is the potential for a wintry mix of precipitation across parts of the east central/northeast plains Wednesday night, including a few inches of wet snow, but significant impacts to travel are not expected at this time.
