Rain and snow showers continue through Tuesday

Scattered rain, snow and graupel showers will continue through Monday evening. Another round will develop across the state on Tuesday.

Snow continued to fall Monday across parts of northern and western New Mexico. Blowing snow caused dangerous travel across northeast New Mexico, but conditions have improved this afternoon. Heavy snow has also been falling across the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. These scattered rain and snow showers will continue through Monday evening, before tapering off overnight. Some light rain and snow showers will stick around into Tuesday morning, but will have very little to no impact on travel.

Even more scattered rain and snow showers will develop Tuesday afternoon all across New Mexico. With a little more instability in the atmosphere Tuesday, expect to hear more rumbles of thunder as well. Several rounds of graupel showers will also move across the state. These scattered showers will bring in generally light accumulations of rain and snow, with some very localized heavier amounts. Drier weather begins to move in Tuesday night.

A warming trend starts Wednesday afternoon as drier air returns to the state. Albuquerque still has not seen 70° so far this year, but that will very likely change by Friday with highs forecast to be in the mid 70s. All across New Mexico, high temperatures will be warmer than normal by Friday afternoon with breezy winds returning starting Friday. Winds will continue to pick up this weekend with warmer weather sticking around through Sunday. Another storm will move into New Mexico starting Easter Sunday, with rain chances and cooler temperatures into early next week.
