By The Staff

The National Weather Service has issued the following local weather alert for Los Alamos and the Jemez Mountains:

WINTRY WEATHER TO SPREAD OVER NEW MEXICO MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT...

A WINTER STORM WILL MOVE ACROSS NEW MEXICO LATE THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT. THIS SYSTEM COULD BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR MODERATE SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ACROSS THE SOUTHERN SECTIONS OF THE STATE.

PRECIPITATION SHOULD BEGIN LATER TODAY IN THE UPPER GILA REGION OF NEW MEXICO... GENERALLY IN THE FORM OF MOUNTAIN SNOW AND VALLEY RAIN SHOWERS. ACTIVITY SHOULD QUICKLY CHANGE TO SNOW MONDAY NIGHT. SNOW WILL SPREAD NORTH AND EAST EARLY TUESDAY... BEFORE DIMINISHING TUESDAY NIGHT.

IT APPEARS THE BEST CHANCE FOR MODERATE ACCUMULATIONS OF SNOWFALL WILL BE ALONG AND SOUTH OF HIGHWAY 60. HOWEVER... THE NORTHERN AND WEST CENTRAL MOUNTAINS MAY ALSO RECEIVE SOME LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS. SNOW AMOUNTS WILL GENERALLY HOVER AROUND TWO INCHES IN THE LOWER ELEVATIONS... WITH AT LEAST FOUR INCHES IN THE SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL MOUNTAINS ABOVE 7500 FEET. SOME UNCERTAINTY STILL REMAINS WITH REGARDS TO THE TRACK AND TIMING OF THE UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM... THEREFORE SNOW AMOUNTS MAY CHANGE.

IF YOU PLAN TO BE OUTDOORS OR TRAVEL ACROSS NEW MEXICO FROM MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY NIGHT... PREPARE FOR WINTRY WEATHER.
