Episode Narrative A storm off the northern California coast on the 25th and 26th moved inland on the 27th, crossing New Mexico early on the 28th. Meanwhile, a second storm from the Pacific Northwest raced southeast across the state on the night of the 28th into the early morning hours of the 29th. The first storm pulled sub-tropical moisture north into the state and tightened the pressure gradient aloft. The second storm had less moisture to work with, but produced a few bursts of heavy snow and strong winds across northern and central New Mexico. Heavy rain in the upper Gila region of the Southwest mountains resulting in isolated flooding and flash flooding events.
Event Narrative High winds were reported between 1237pm on January 28th to 555am on January 29th. Peak wind gusts ranged from 58 mph to 63 mph.
