... Winter weather arriving this weekend across New Mexico...

A storm system gathering strength over the eastern Pacific Ocean
will bring the next blast of winter weather to New Mexico this
weekend. First, a nice warming trend will begin today followed by
near record warmth over parts of eastern New Mexico Friday.

Rain and mountain snow is expected to develop over western New
Mexico Saturday afternoon as a potent cold front approaches from
the west. This front will race eastward and spread rain and snow
into the Rio Grande Valley and surrounding high terrain through
Saturday evening. Dramatically colder air moving in behind the
cold front will quickly change rain over to snow in all areas,
including the Rio Grande Valley. This system has the potential to
produce several inches of snow in the higher terrain of northern
New Mexico, along with strong winds and blowing snow. The sharply
colder air arriving Saturday evening may produce a flash freeze
on Road surfaces. This storm system will linger over northeastern
New Mexico Sunday with potential for accumulating snow as far
south as the Interstate 40 corridor of eastern New Mexico.

Windy conditions and bitter cold wind chills will persist Sunday
and Monday as the storm exits into the Great Plains. The latest
computer models are coming into good agreement on the details of
this potential winter storm this weekend. Those planning travel
through New Mexico should stay alert to the latest forecasts and
roadway conditions. Monitor NOAA Weather Radio, weather.Gov/abq or
your local media for the latest updates on this situation. For
the latest Road conditions, visit nmroads.Com, dial 5-1-1, or
