... Pacific weather system to bring rain, high elevation snow, and
thunderstorms to much of northern and central New Mexico...
A low pressure system will move inland off of the Pacific tonight
into Thursday. Low level moisture will continue to seep into New
Mexico with additional mid to high level moisture accompanying
this low pressure system. This system will move eastward very
slowly, crossing northern New Mexico Friday into Friday night.
Expect rain, high elevation snow, and a few thunderstorms to
impact western New Mexico tonight. By Thursday, precipitation will
spread into central parts of the state with any snow
accumulations remaining light and generally confined to elevations
above 9,000 feet during the day Thursday. Snow levels will lower
Thursday night into Friday night with additional rounds of
precipitation, especially over north central New Mexico where a
couple to several inches of mountain snow are expected.
Precipitation will continue over north central areas into the
daytime Friday while also finally spreading over much of eastern
New Mexico in the form of thunderstorms. Thunderstorms will likely
continue over eastern New Mexico through Friday evening before
shifting to the east.
Residents and travelers throughout northern and central New
Mexico will want to remain abreast of the latest weather forecasts
and statements at weather.Gov/abq or via a preferred media
outlet. Increased precipitation chances and possible disruptions
to outdoor plans can be expected.
