Special Statement
Issued: 4:19 AM MDT Mar. 20, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Slow moving storm system to impact northern and central New
Mexico tonight through Friday night...

A slow moving storm system will impact northern and central New
Mexico tonight through Friday night. Showers and a few
thunderstorms will develop over western New Mexico later today
then spread eastward tonight and Thursday. Snow levels will be
rather high initially with any accumulations mostly limited to
elevations at or above 8500 feet.

Snow levels will lower by Thursday night when colder air aloft
moves overhead and the majority of snowfall accumulations are
expected. Four to eight inches of snow are possible over the
northern high terrain as well some of the Western Mountain peaks.

The storm is expected to exit New Mexico from west to east over
the state Friday into Friday night. A line of showers and storms
could develop over the eastern plains Friday afternoon with a few
strong storms possible.

Computer models have not been very consistent in regards to
precipitation amounts and therefore possible snow accumulations.
Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio, or monitor weather.Gov/abq or
your favorite media outlet for future updates and any winter
weather advisories or warnings for this incoming storm system.
