I've been thinkin' our temps are a lot colder than usual for early December and it looks like I'm right. From the NWS in ABQ:
... More rounds of wintry weather will impact northern and central New Mexico through midweek...
With the first of three wintry storms now clear of New Mexico... two more rounds of wintry weather will pass across New Mexico through midweek... leaving the state firmly in the grip of winter chill with the coldest temperatures seen so far this season.
The next wintry round will move from The Boot heel of New Mexico across the southern tier of the state during the day today to bring a quick round of light snow mainly south of Interstate 40 through this afternoon.
Round three will be more substantial and a much deeper plunge into winter weather... with widespread and long lasting snow beginning this evening over northern New Mexico and extending southward overnight tonight. Cold air ramming westward from the Southern Plains will reach northeast New Mexico tonight... and the combination of gusty winds and falling snow will produce locally poor visibilities in blowing and drifting snow over the northeast quadrant of the state.
With snow tapering off on Tuesday... cold temperatures will remain behind... with Tuesday high temperatures ranging from the teens over the northern mountains... and to near the freezing mark near Roswell. Tuesday night temperatures will fall to double digits below zero for Sangre de Cristo mountain... especially near Eagle Nest and Angel Fire.Insert al-Gore joke here. It ain't so damned funny, however.
Some modest relief from the winter chill is in the forecast for Wednesday and Thursday before a quick burst of cooler air arrives on Friday. Temperatures through the work week will remain well below seasonal normals for early December.
