New Mexico Winter Storm is leaving the state today

The storm moves out today with persistently cold temperatures



ALL THE HILLS. YES! SECURE. WE WATCHED THEM CLEAR THE SNOW IN RUIDOSO. JUST LOOK AT SOME OF THE LITTLE FLOWER POTS THERE ON THE STREET SIDE AND SOME OF THESE LITTLE THINGS THAT ARE SNOW COATED. IT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS A 4 OR 5 INCH SNOWFALL. AND RUDOLPH’S OVERNIGHT, 21 AND RUIDOSO TOO. SO THAT SNOW GETS ADHESION. WHAT REMAINS OF THE STORM SYSTEM LIES ABOVE SOUTHERN AND EASTERN NEW MEXICO, HAS BEEN TEMPERATURES AT OR BELOW FREEZING. NOT THAT IT’S WINDY LIKE YESTERDAY, BUT WHEN IT’S BELOW FREENOTE THAT THIS LITTLE MINI BREEZE IS 5 TO 10. THIS FEEL LIKE NUMBERS, WIND CHUCK WHEN YOU STEP OUT THE DOOR AND WELL BELOW FREEZING statewide. AND MANY OF US HAVE UP TO TEENAGERS LIKE NUMBERS. IT FEELS LIKE SUB ZERO IN THE CITY AND LAS VEGAS FEELS LIKE SEVEN DEGREES NOW WHILE YOU ARE FOLKING WHAT’S LEFT OF THE SNOW. WE HAVE JUST OBSERVED SOME OF THESE RECENT DISTURBANCES HERE THROUGH VALENCIA AND SOCORRO COUNTY COMPLETELY RELAXING ON THOSE STRETCHES OF I-25. THE SNOW HAS NOT COMPLETELY ENDED NEAR TIER C AND THIS IS A REALLY HILLY ROAD. WE HAVE SOME SHOWERS SURROUNDING HERE IN NEW MEXICO AND IN THE HATCH VALLEY AND ABOVE IN EASTERN NEW MEXICO. HERE OUR SNOWS ARE MORE CONSTANT AND HEAVY FROM FORT SUMTER TOWARDS CLOVIS AND THE HEAVEST SNOW IN THE STATE CURRENTLY FALLS DIRECTLY ON TATUM, LOVINGTON AND HOBBS. WE WILL WATCH THIS STORM SYSTEM LOSE ITS GRIP AROUND NOON. WE EXPECT SOME AFTERNOON AND EVENING RECOVERY HERE OVER THE NORTH MOUNTAINS AND MAYBE HERE FOR ALBUQUERQUE’S EAST MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES. AND THIS SNOW WILL CONTINUE INTO THE NIGHT, MAYBE RECODE THE GROUND WITH A NEW INCH OR TWO. AND THAT COULD SET THE STAGE FOR ANOTHER ROUND OF SCHOOL DELAYS TOMORROW TOMORROW AT A FEW POINTS BETWEEN NOW AND LUNCHTIME. ADDITIONAL SNOW ACCUMULATION FROM OUR STORM SYSTEM, 1 TO 2 INCHES FROM THE EAST. WE HAVE A LUNCH BREAK AND THEN WATCH THE SNOW REMEDIATION HERE. ANOTHER 1 TO 2 INCHES FROM THE SONGWRITER CHRISTOS IN THE ESTANCIA VALLEY AND MAYBE FOR ALBUQUERQUE’S EAST MOUNTAIN COMMUNITIES THIS WILL BE POSSIBLE TONIGHT AND THE OVERNIGHT COULD BE ON THE GROUND WHEN WE WAKE UP TOMORROW MORNING. HERE IS OUR FORECAST. HIGH TEMPERATURES, THE NUMBERS ARE ABOUT TEN BELOW THE AVERAGE. EVEN BY THE END OF JANUARY, STANDARDS AND THESE THIRTS AND FORTIES WILL COME WITH ENOUGH WIND TO HAVE FELT IT
