Special Statement

Statement as of 10:53 AM MDT on April 26, 2017

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on April 26, 2017


... Significant late season winter storm to hit northern and
central New Mexico late Friday through early Sunday...

An unusually cold upper level low pressure system and associated
cold front will begin impacting the area Friday, with impacts
ramping up Friday night into Saturday. Precipitation chances will
trend up during the Friday night through Saturday period, with the
best chances over the northern mountains and much of east central
and northeast New Mexico. Rain will quickly turn over to snow
Friday night into Saturday morning, even at a number of lower
elevation locales. Accumulating snow is expected, with significant
amounts in the northern mountains and across northeast New
Mexico. Major travel corridors will be impacted by accumulating
snow, especially along Interstate 25 between Glorieta Pass and
Raton Pass and possibly along Interstate 40 between Tijeras pass
and Santa Rosa.

In addition to snow impacts, a late season freeze is forecast
Saturday night into Sunday morning at a number of lower elevation
locales that are already beyond the average last freeze date. In
fact, a number of lower elevation locales may see a hard freeze,
which could have significant negative impacts to local
agriculture.

Monitor NOAA Weather Radio, weather.Gov/abq or your local media
for the latest updates on this situation.
