It’s been an unseasonably warm November in New Mexico. Albuquerque could see a couple of inches of snow Monday night. There could be up to six inches in northern parts of the state.

As all the folks who wanted to ski or snowboard earlier this month know, it took a long time to get cold enough for even manufactured snow to stick.

Wet Spring Weather On The Way

New Mexico is on track for some much needed drought relief according to the National Weather Service spring forecast.

Andrew Church is an NWS meteorologist and said a combination of warm coastal waters and a shift in trade winds from last week’s tropical cyclones will deliver higher than average precipitation across the state.

“It’s a wet scenario for us, something we haven’t seen in at least four years so,” Church explained. “If you were thinking about investing in rain barrels, this would be a good year to do it!”
