The National Weather Service Forecast Office in Albuquerque reports a winter storm potential for Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

After a brief respite from wintry weather, yet another storm system will impact New Mexico Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. Differences exist between this storm and the last. This next storm system will have colder air to work with but current (Monday evening) models suggest a bit less in the way of moisture. It appears this system could be dynamic and produce another round of moderate to potentially significant snowfall accumulations favoring the high terrain of central and northern New Mexico Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. Initially, snow levels appear to be above 7500 feet falling through Tuesday night, potentially below 6000 feet. Depending on how far south the system tracks, any precipitation could change to snow briefly over the far northeast highlands/plains late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning.
