...SLOW MOVING STORM SYSTEM TO IMPACT NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT... A slow moving storm system will impact northern and central New Mexico tonight through Friday night. Showers and a few thunderstorms will develop over western New Mexico later today then spread eastward tonight and Thursday. Snow levels will be rather high initially with any accumulations mostly limited to elevations at or above 8500 feet. Snow levels will lower by Thursday night when colder air aloft moves overhead and the majority of snowfall accumulations are expected. Four to eight inches of snow are possible over the northern high terrain as well some of the western mountain peaks. The storm is expected to exit New Mexico from west to east over the state Friday into Friday night. A line of showers and storms could develop over the eastern plains Friday afternoon with a few strong storms possible. Computer models have not been very consistent in regards to precipitation amounts and therefore possible snow accumulations. Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, or monitor weather.gov/abq or your favorite media outlet for future updates and any winter weather advisories or warnings for this incoming storm system.
