Expires 7:00 AM EST on December 23, 2014


... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 6 am Monday to 5 am MST
Tuesday...

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow... which is in effect
from 6 am Monday to 5 am MST Tuesday.

* Snow accumulations... generally 2 to 6 inches above 8500 feet
with localized amounts of 8 inches on isolated peaks above 10000
feet.

* Timing... occasional snow showers will turn more periodic and
persistent Monday morning and through the afternoon. Snow will
gradually turn more intermittent Monday night... diminishing
completely by Tuesday morning.

* Winds... sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph with occasional gusts to
50 mph will be possible on Monday... mostly over west facing
slopes and ridge tops of the jemez and Tusas Mountains. This
could further reduce visibility due to blowing snow.

* Snow levels... snow levels will be dropping to 5500 to 6500 feet
late Monday... but the most significant accumulations will be
found above 8500 feet.

* Local impacts... snow will reduce visibility and create snow
packed and icy roads. Travel will likely be
impacted... especially on higher elevation roads.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow and blowing snow means that
visibilities will be restricted due to a combination of falling
and blowing snow.
