Watches & Warnings

Special Statement
Issued: 3:30 AM MST Dec. 11, 2018 – National Weather Service

... A potent cold front will bring strong to damaging winds and
some snow to portions of northern and central New Mexico Wednesday
night into Thursday morning...

The polar jet stream will dip south from the Great Basin across
New Mexico Wednesday night, spreading strong winds over the state
both ahead of and behind a potent cold front. Windy conditions
will develop late Wednesday, but the strongest winds will be
during the overnight hours into early Thursday morning behind the
front. Strong to damaging winds are likely over the central and
southern mountains and across the eastern plains, especially near
the Texas border.

In addition to strong winds, areas of snow and blowing snow will
develop across the northern mountains late Wednesday then spread
southeast across the plains Wednesday night into early Thursday
morning. Several inches of snow accumulation is possible in the
Sangre de Cristo Mountains and along the Raton ridge, with lesser
amounts elsewhere. The bigger impact will likely be blowing snow,
which will affect portions of the Interstate 25 and Interstate 40
corridors across eastern New Mexico.

Those with travel or outdoor plans across New Mexico Wednesday night
through Thursday morning should monitor the latest forecasts at
weather.Gov/abq or your preferred media outlet. Significant travel
impacts are possible with this storm system across portions of
northern and central New Mexico. For the latest travel conditions
