More snow headed to New Mexico
ALBUQUERQUE — Forecasters with the National Weather Service said New Mexico is in line for some more snow.
Two storms are expected to hit northern and central parts of the state through Monday night. The first will bring high winds and some snow to the northern mountains starting Saturday night. The next storm will bring more snow with cooler temperatures starting Sunday night.
This follows an epic storm that blew through New Mexico in late October. Record snowfall was widespread during that event, providing some relief to persistent drought conditions.
Overall, precipitation was below normal in the central and southern parts of the state for October and predictions say chances are greater for below normal precipitation in the upcoming months.
Forecasters said October also was warmer in the west and central areas, but near to a little below normal in the east. Record high temperatures were recorded on multiple days during early and mid October, while record low temperatures were set near the end of the month.
