It's about 4:00 a.m. and we have about 4" on the ground in the High Rolls/Mountain Park area. National Weather Service is predicting a total of between 11 and 19 inches before Tuesday evening.
So, what is it looking like in the Cloudcroft/Timberon area?

Ski Apache is reporting 4" of snow. I hope they receive a lot more.

The snow in Ruidoso yesterday morning didn't amount to much. We saw a couple
inches on some cars coming in from the north, but this is all we encountered
as we started driving back to ABQ @ 10am.

We were in Cloudcroft to see Santa and Mrs. Claus on Saturday night. It was warm for this time of year. We had just gotten through the line and it started misting and then the wind started blowing. It started sleeting and all turned to snow covering the ground all within about a five minute period of time. We had to jump in the car and come on down the mountain because it was covering the road. If we didn't have to be back home today, we would have stayed and played. It was absolutely beautiful.

Just having arrived to NM (LC) in August, I have to say I feel betrayed to see "snow" in the forecast -- more than an inch? YUCK!!!! (I came here from Maine, and can tell you about snow.)

Well, you're having some of that November-on-the-East-Coast rain! Kinda rare for this place, but enjoy any and all precipitation here.

Ohhh enjoy the snow, it doesn't happen in this part of NM very often and it will be gone before you know it. I wish I were home right now to see it, I have to be satisfied with pics from my son of my backyard in Alamo.

At least the forecast had the part right about this storm hanging around for a few days - but it missed on the supposed intensity. While it began raining Saturday overnight, turning to snow Sunday during the day, and has snowed in light flurries on and off and still is on Tuesday early morning, it's not added up to more than about six(+/-) accumulated inches in town (Ruidoso). Photo attached was taken at 6am this morning (with flash).

Surprise this (Tues) morning is that Wed is now being shown as the only day this week when snow is NOT in the forecast.

And of course the real difference is the southern area being affected by this storm. I don't think Santa Fe and the northern part of the state has benefited at all from this one. But El Paso has - with road closures in effect there as of Monday (Transmountain and Scenic Drive).
