A strong storm system will impact New Mexico continuing into tonight and early Monday. The storm system will bring much colder air and significant accumulations of snowfall favoring the northern mountains, then shifting eastward into the northeast highlands and plains tonight.


The heaviest snowfall is expected over the San Juan, Jemez and Sangre De Cristo Mountains into today with accumulations of 5 to 10 inches expected. Localized amounts of 10 to 14 inches may be possible, especially near the Colorado border. Heavy snow will also be possible over the northeast highlands and plains through tonight.
