A storm system gathering strength over the eastern Pacific Ocean
will bring the next blast of winter weather to New Mexico this
weekend. It will arrive rather abruptly as near record warmth is
expected today.

Rain and mountain snow is expected to develop over western New
Mexico late Saturday afternoon as a potent cold front approaches
from the west. This cold front will race eastward across the
Continental Divide and into the Rio Grande Valley late Saturday
evening. Dramatically colder air behind this 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 high terrain of northern New Mexico, along with strong
winds and blowing snow. Sharply colder air Saturday evening may
produce a flash freeze on road surfaces, particularly along the
Interstate 40 corridor of western New Mexico. This storm will
linger over northeastern New Mexico Sunday where a couple inches
of snow is possible near the New Mexico Colorado border.

Widespread windy conditions, cold temperatures, and bitter wind
chills will persist Sunday and Monday as the storm exits into the
Great Plains. Those planning travel through New Mexico should stay
alert to the latest forecasts and roadway conditions. Monitor
NOAA weather radio, or your local media for the
latest on this developing weather scenario. For the latest road
conditions, visit, dial 511, or 1.800.432.4269.


Winter Storm Watch

Northern Sangre de Cristos above 9500 feet/Red River-
Southern Sangre de Cristos above 9500 feet-
407 AM MST Fri Jan 19 2018


* WHAT...Heavy snow and blowing snow possible. Plan on difficult
travel conditions. Total snow accumulations up to 10 inches are

* WHERE...San Juan Mountains, Northern Sangre de Cristos above
9500 feet including Red River, and Southern Sangre de Cristos
above 9500 feet.

* WHEN...From Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Significant reductions in visibility are
possible from snow and blowing snow. Significantly colder air
moving in with this storm will result in rapidly deteriorating
travel conditions in the high terrain.


A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant
snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue
to monitor the latest forecasts.
