Message summary: ...unseasonably cool and unsettled weather to continue for much of northern and central new mexico...
A cold airmass settled into the land of enchantment earlier this week, and now an unseasonably deep and strong low pressure system has taken shape west of new mexico. This feature will continue to draw cool, moist air into the state, keeping temperatures several degrees below normal (as much as 10 to 30 degrees). Areas of precipitation will periodically develop over the state today through wednesday and thursday. Rain and high elevation snow showers will develop today across western new mexico with lighter precipitation being common along and east of the central mountain chain. Some areas immediately near the central mountain chain could observe bouts of wintry precipitation, including rain, snow, freezing drizzle, and even sleet. Light to moderate snow accumulations will be possible in the higher elevations above 8000 feet, especially during the nighttime hours. Precipitation should begin to decrease and diminish late thursday. In addition, strong east winds are expected to impact some central to west central sections of new mexico. Winds will accelerate through gaps and canyons before impacting portions of the albuquerque metropolitan area late today and even more-so into wednesday when gusts may reach 45 mph. Strong east winds will also be common toward the continental divide in west central new mexico. Residents and travelers throughout new mexico should remain alert to these unsettled weather conditions, and be prepared for low to modest accumulations of wintry precipitation, especially during the nighttime hours. Stay tuned to the latest forecasts at weather.gov/abq or via your preferred media source.
