Taos residents woke up Thursday morning (Nov. 28) to a white Thanksgiving, with more winter weather predicted.
Albuquerque meteorologists from the National Weather Service say a complex winter system will continue to evolve today as a wintry mix moves across the eastern plains. Precipitation will change to rain during the afternoon for many valley areas, as snow levels rise throughout the day. Given that temperatures will stay near to above freezing, some slick road conditions can be expected.
Significant travel impacts are likely through Thanksgiving Day before another storm system Friday brings more snow to the north and west regions of the state.
A changeover to all snow is expected Friday night as a strong Pacific cold front sweeps from west to east. Travel may be impacted along the Interstate 40 and 25 corridors. Strong winds with gusts up to 50-55 mph along and east of the central mountain chain may lead to power outages and hazardous travel conditions along major interstates.
For the Taos area, meteorologists predict a 50 percent chance of morning and evening snow and afternoon rain for both Thursday and Friday.
