New Mexico Daily Snow
By Joel Gratz, Founding Meteorologist Posted 4 years ago March 13, 2019
So far this week we are on track.
Snow fell from Sunday night through Tuesday night with the following 48-hour totals ending on Wednesday morning.
Santa Fe: 14”
Red River: 12”
Angel Fire: 11”
The great news is that more snow will fall on Wednesday and Wednesday night as an incredibly strong storm forms over eastern Colorado and western Kansas.
Expect 8-20 inches of additional snow on Wednesday and Wednesday night, with the majority of the snow falling during the day on Wednesday.
While the snow on Monday and Tuesday was dense and thick due to warm temperatures, readings will fall through the day on Wednesday and Wednesday night so the snow quality should improve and become fluffier.
The downside to Wednesday is the strong winds. Gusts at the summit could be faster than 50mph and this could close some upper lifts.
With some snow continuing on Wednesday evening after lifts close, you may find deep and soft conditions on Thursday morning. Also, if terrain does not open on Wednesday because of lift closures due to the strong wind, then this terrain should be available to enjoy on Thursday.
Looking further ahead, the weather from Friday through the weekend will be sunny and dry. Then we might see light snow from weak storms next week, with a better chance for stronger storms toward the final 7 days of March
Thanks for reading!
