Maximum temperatures in the region were colder than normal as multiple cold fronts passed through the state, but low temperatures were near average in January.

Maximum temperatures have been below average in Los Alamos County since October 2018.
Wind chills were below zero degrees, particularly on Jan. 18 and 21, as wind gusts exceeded 40 mph (41 mph and 49 mph, respectively).

The multiple cold fronts kept most of New Mexico at near average temperatures.

The above average precipitation that occurred at the end of 2018 continued into 2019. Los Alamos measured 142 percent of average precipitation and 166 percent of normal snowfall.

Over the past three months, Los Alamos has measured above-average snowfall. The 49.8 inches of snow this winter is the most snowfall through January since the winters of 2000 and 2001.

The snowpack for northern New Mexico Mountains is near average, with the Jemez Mountains at 95 percent of average, while the mountains in southern New Mexico are around 50 percent.

The northwest half of New Mexico had above average precipitation, while the southeast half had below average precipitation.
