Strong Cold Front Dives into the Deep South – Also Snow

Snow forecast as far south as Clovis, New Mexico. Six to 12 inches (15 to 30 cm) of snow in some areas.

“Cold Air Invasion Today,” warns the National Weather Service. A strong cold front will move into the Southern states Thursday and Friday.

High temperatures will be 10 to 30 degrees below average.

Snow will be possible in the South High Plains, with heavy rain and potential for flash flooding ahead of the front.


A storm system will impact northeast New Mexico through today. The heaviest snowfall will be focused near Raton Pass as well as Johnson and Bartlett Mesas, where 6 to 12 inches of snow is likely. Wind gusts up to 35 or 40 mph could result in areas of blowing snow. Significant travel impacts to the Interstate 25
corridor are expected near the Colorado border. Meanwhile, lighter snowfall amounts will still result in slick road conditions across the Sangre de Cristo Mountains eastward to the Texas border. Snowfall will also likely bring isolated impacts to the east slopes of the Jemez Mountains to include Los Alamos.

  1. Seeing all this snow in the States is killing me…I am in Croatia where it is rather warm at the moment. I lived in Great Falls, MT and we would go to Showdown Ski Resort where they average 221” per season…the season is 1 Dec to 1 April. They don’t even measure the snow that is falling now…I think they have had 2 or 3 snows already of 1-2 feet each time (upwards of 20 inches today).

  2. Snow in The Texas panhandle today. Even in southern New England where I am from that is rare in October. Good news is we here in Austin just got dumped on big time with a lot of rain after a 4 month drought.

    • Myka 4 months with low to no rain isnt drought.
      its a dry spell
      after a yr with low to bare minimum rain then you can call start of a drought
      or thats how Aussies would call it

  3. Dang white stuff has to shame the old hard once again. I guess it is a matter of time until it finally gets cold enough for reason to set in.
