  •  We were leaving next week anyway, so (3+ / 0-)

    this is no biggie.

    It has been unseasonably warm here as it was in Zion and at Lake Powell, a truly beautiful fall. But the drought is still here......

    Not sure what the avg temps are usually that cold up there further north in NM but this is the special weather statement for Santa Fe.

    THE PROLONGED STRETCH OF UNSEASONABLY WARM WEATHER WILL COME TO AN
    ABRUPT END THIS WEEKEND. TEMPERATURES WILL BEGIN TO TREND DOWNWARD
    FRIDAY AND SATURDAY...BUT TEMPERATURES WILL TAKE A DRASTIC DIP ON
    SUNDAY AS A STORM SYSTEM AND ITS ASSOCIATED ARCTIC COLD FRONT SLAMS
    THROUGH THE STATE. HIGH TEMPERATURES ON SUNDAY WILL BE UP TO 20
    DEGREES BELOW NORMAL...A RADICAL CHANGE FROM THE RECENT WARM
    WEATHER. IN FACT...SOME AREAS WILL STRUGGLE TO REACH THE FREEZING
    MARK SUNDAY AFTERNOON. SUNDAY NIGHT WILL BE THE COLDEST SO FAR THIS
    SEASON...WITH MANY LOCATIONS ACROSS NORTHERN AND WESTERN NEW MEXICO
    BETWEEN 5 BELOW AND 5 ABOVE ZERO.  STRONG NORTHERLY WINDS BEHIND THE
    FRONT WILL ALSO CREATE BITTERLY COLD WIND CHILL VALUES SUNDAY AND
    MONDAY.

    THIS SYSTEM WILL ALSO BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR LIGHT TO MODERATE SNOW
    ACCUMULATIONS SUNDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHT. AT THIS TIME...THE GREATEST
    POTENTIAL FOR SNOW IMPACTS STRETCH FROM THE SANGRE DE CRISTO
    MOUNTAINS SOUTHWARD TO THE INTERSTATE 40 CORRIDOR...AND EASTWARD TO
    RATON PASS AND SANTA ROSA. HOWEVER...LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS ARE ALSO
    POSSIBLE ELSEWHERE...INCLUDING WESTERN NEW MEXICO.

    THOUGH THERE IS POTENTIAL FOR THE SNOW CHANCES TO CHANGE...THE
    ABRUPT CHANGE TO MUCH COLDER TEMPERATURES IS CERTAIN. PREPARE NOW
    FOR THESE COLDER TEMPERATURES AND POTENTIAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS.

    THOSE WITH TRAVEL AND OUTDOOR PLANS ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW
    MEXICO OVER THE WEEKEND ARE ENCOURAGED TO MONITOR THE LATEST WEATHER
    FORECASTS FOR UPDATES ON THIS POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS WINTER WEATHER
    SYSTEM. MORE DETAILED INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND ONLINE AT
    WWW.WEATHER.GOV/ABQ...VIA NOAA WEATHER RADIO OR YOUR FAVORITE MEDIA
    OUTLET.
