No... make that MY local on the eights, if'n you please. From the Portales News-Tribune:
Winter wasn't ready to let up Friday morning.
The temperature was 16 degrees just before 8 a.m. in Portales, according to Accuweather. Overnight, 1-5 inches of more snow had accumulated on top of yesterday's snow in the area, said Maria Torres, intern meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Albuquerque.It's pretty hard to tell how much snow we got just by going outside and walking around. That's because it was very windy during the storm, so there are drifts that look to be eight or ten inches deep while other areas have hardly an inch or two on the ground. One thing I DO know, tho: it's colder than (insert cliché here. My favorite has to do with the sorceress' mammary glands).
She said Saturday and Sunday were expected to be sunny with a high of 46 Saturday and 51 Sunday.
An additional 1-5 inches of snow fell on Portales Thursday night, adding to the accumulation of more than 6 inches from the day before.
