Episode Narrative A potent storm system moved across southern California and Nevada, into Arizona and eventually New Mexico. The system tapped into abundant moisture from the south that overspread the state, setting the stage for significant rain over much of northern and central New Mexico. The higher elevations of the central and northern mountains received a foot or more of snow.
