NEW MEXICO: Albuquerque meteorologists from the National Weather Service are tracking a storm system slated to bring much colder temperatures, high winds and snow to the Land of Enchantment on Monday (Feb. 3) and Tuesday.
Meteorologists said strong to damaging southwest winds will precede the snowfall, impacting areas near and south of Interstate 40 as well as the Chuska Mountains in northwestern New Mexico with gusts between 50 and 65 mph, weather officials said.
Snow will favor northern and western New Mexico Monday afternoon through Tuesday, according to NWS officials, who predict the heaviest snow amounts across the northern mountains, where up to 10 inches of snow is possible.
Meanwhile, a potent cold front will arrive Monday afternoon, meteorologists added, with temperatures plummeting across northwest New Mexico Monday afternoon through early Tuesday morning.
“Whatever your coldest night of the winter has been thus far, will likely be matched Wednesday morning as the weather clears out,” according to a NWS statement.
