FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
700 AM MST FRI FEB 27 2015

...SIGNIFICANT SNOW EVENT CONTINUES FOR HIGHER TERRAIN AREAS...

.DISCUSSION...A VERY ACTIVE JET STREAM PATTERN OVER NEW MEXICO IS
DELIVERING MAJOR DOSES OF SNOWFALL FOR THE HIGHER TERRAIN. SNOW AND
BITTER COLD OVER THE REGION THIS MORNING WILL TAPER OFF THEN LEAD
INTO ANOTHER ROUND OF SNOW FOR THE NORTH TONIGHT. TEMPERATURES WILL
TREND MUCH WARMER FOR EASTERN AREAS OVER THE WEEKEND AHEAD OF THE
NEXT STORM SYSTEM. THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS WILL CONTINUE TO PILE IT
ON...WITH VERY HEAVY SNOWFALL EXPECTED ABOVE 7500 FEET. ANOTHER
BLAST OF COLDER AIR WILL FILTER IN EARLY NEXT WEEK AND RING OUT
THE REMAINING MOISTURE OVER THE STATE IN THE FORM OF SNOW. BY THE
TIME THIS ACTIVE PATTERN ENDS THERE MAY BE SOME LOCALES IN THE
NORTHERN HIGH TERRAIN WITH NEAR NORMAL SNOWPACK FOR EARLY MARCH.
