New Mexico’s third storm of the week will hit Santa Fe on Thursday afternoon, with a good chance of 1 to 2 inches for the City Different. Santa Fe schools were already on a two-hour delay as of about 10 p.m. Wednesday night, according to a tweet from Superintendent Joel Boyd.
"Safety is our top priority," Boyd said, citing icy road conditions.
If storm No. 4 hits Friday night and Saturday, National Weather Service meteorologists will have a perfect score for their predictions made earlier in the week.
Santa Fe received little snow in Tuesday night’s storm, although the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains received 1 to 2 1/2 inches, according to snow-monitoring sites.
Ski Santa Fe reported Wednesday that the ski basin had received 6 inches of new snow over the prior 24 hours, bringing the base depth to 80 inches. Taos Ski Valley reported an additional 2 inches of new snow, with a base of 73 inches as of Wednesday afternoon.
Overcast skies made Santa Fe look more like Seattle all Wednesday, with a light snow wetting streets but not sticking. A chance of snow will remain through the weekend.
