... Potent Spring storm to bring an end to the recent warmth...

The extended period of record warmth will come to a dramatic end
Thursday as a potent Spring storm system impacts New Mexico with
wind, Rain, Mountain snow and much cooler temperatures.

Southwest winds will increase Thursday morning ahead of a strong
upper low and surface cold front. Many areas within central and
eastern nm will experience wind gusts between 45 and 65 mph along
with localized areas of blowing dust. The cold front will plow
eastward through late afternoon and shift winds dramatically to
the west. Much cooler air will move into nm behind this front
with windy conditions continuing.Nrain and high terrain snow
showers will also develop over northern and western nm behind the
front. Meanwhile, a dryline will set up over far eastern nm and
increase the chance for a few severe thunderstorms along the TX
state line.

A second cold front will blast into the northeast late Thursday
night and drive south Friday with high winds, colder air and
precipitation.

This storm system will quickly intensify over northeastern nm
Thursday night and Friday before exiting into the Central Plains
states. A second cold front will blast south into northeast New
Mexico late Thursday night and roar south Friday. High winds
will develop over eastern nm with gusts up to 65 mph possible.
High terrain snow will continue over the Sangre de Cristo
Mountains eastward along the co border. The potential exists for
several inches of wind blown snow to accumulate in this area,
including Angel Fire, Ute Park, Raton Pass, Des Moines, Capulin
and Folsom.

The combination of windy conditions with much cooler temperatures
across the entire area will be a shock compared to the recent
warmth.
