Mountain Weather January 10, 2018

Date: 01/10/2018

A potent closed low-pressure system is tracking through New Mexico today, spinning moisture up towards us on a southwest flow this morning. The warm pre-fontal part of the storm will bring a small amount of dense snow this morning. Then as the storm progresses eastward a cold front will fill in behind it, putting us under our beloved westerly flow for several hours early this afternoon. We can expect nice blizzard conditions after lunch. This evening the storm will wrap up under a cold and dry northwest flow that will carry through tomorrow.
