Special Statement
Issued: 4:30 AM MST Jan. 19, 2017 – National Weather Service

... A series of storm systems to bring strong winds... accumulating
mountain snow and colder temperatures to northern and central New
Mexico tonight through Saturday night...

New Mexico will be under an unsettled weather pattern for the rest
of this week through the middle of next week. A series of storm
systems are forecast to bring mountain snow and valley rain and
snow to the west and central tonight through Saturday night. The
eastern plains and Central Highlands as well as the exposed
higher terrain can expect bouts of strong and gusty winds today
through Saturday night. Highs will cool Friday west and central
but moreso Saturday, starting the weekend with temperatures 5 to
15 degrees below average.

Although snow is expected to occur off and on through Saturday
night over the western and central higher terrain, locales along
and west of the Continental Divide are predicted to pick up the
most snow by early Sunday. A foot or more is possible at
elevations above 8000 feet in the chuska and northwest mountains.
Occasional westerly wind gusts to around 50 or 55 mph are possible
over the exposed higher terrain and eastern plains as surface low
pressure develops and intensifies over Texas and Oklahoma.

A brief break in the busy weather is expected Sunday... then
another storm system looks to arrive next Monday. Wind will again
plague the east Monday through Tuesday while the west and central
may pick up more snow. Much colder and considerably below average
temperatures will overspread the region.

Monitor NOAA Weather Radio... weather.Gov/abq or your local media
for the latest updates and potential watches... advisories or
warnings due to these changing and challenging weather
conditions. For the latest New Mexico Road conditions call 511 or
