January 2013 across New Mexico was much drier than normal while temperatures were near to above normal. The southeast was a little below normal.
The first few days of 2014 were dry with mostly above normal temperatures. A strong cold front though arrived on the 4th and brought light snow and much colder temperatures to the northeast, and much colder weather statewide on the 5th. A storm on the 9th only dropped snow on the highest northern mountain peaks, but did bring strong winds on the 9th and 10th. Strong winds buffetted Clines Corners to Tucumcari on the 12th. Much of the rest of the month was dry with above normal temperatures. These milder temperatures were interrupted by cold blasts on the 23rd and 27th through 28th, mainly across eastern New Mexico. A little snow fell in the northeast on the 23rd. The final week of the month was mostly dry until some snow fell in the north and west on the 31st.
