Winter weather on the way

-A A +A
By The Staff

Forecasters say much of northern and central New Mexico will get a strong dose of winter weather later this week.
A hazardous weather outlook issued by the National Weather Service’s Albuquerque office says a potent cold front will move into eastern New Mexico late Thursday and then westward into the Rio Grande Valley.
Winds will be in the range of 25 to 35 mph but with gusts up to 45 mph in eastern New Mexico and up to 50 mph in some other areas by Thursday and Friday nights.
Moderate to heavy snowfall accumulations are possible over higher terrain from late Wednesday through Monday, with light accumulations possible in lower elevations.
According to the NWS, a deep low pressure system will begin ejecting very slowly eastward and spread significant rain and snow over northern and western New Mexico Thursday night into Friday. A lull in the precipitation is expected to develop overnight Friday into Saturday with an uptick in precipitation coverage expected Sunday into Monday as the upper low crosses the state.
A shallow pool of very cold air in place over eastern New Mexico will provide a favorable set up for a mixture of sleet and freezing rain Thursday night through Friday night. There is still a considerable amount of uncertainty remaining on the exact track and timing of the storm system and greatest impacts.
