Residents of New Mexico may be enchanted by this forecast, especially if they love snow!  The Land of Enchantment can expect quite a winter wallop into Saturday.  The Albuquerque metro area is under a Blizzard Warning. https://twitter.com/NWSAlbuquerque/status/1078644052730482689 Here's the latest from NWS Albuquerque: The potential for heavy snow accumulation exists across most of northern and central New Mexico, along with strong wind gusts.  The snow will linger into the state's eastern plains through Saturday morning. According to the National Weather Service office in Albuquerque, cold air and easterly upslope flow delivered by an exiting storm system will set the stage for widespread snow as a stronger storm system arrives from the northwest. Along with the potential for heavy snow, strong easterly winds may gust up to 60 miles per hour!  Blowing and drifting snow may cause whiteout conditions and hazardous travel through the event.  Very cold air will also enter the forecast with wind chill values in the single digits and teens.  Wind chills may potentially dip below zero in a few locations Friday and Saturday morning. https://twitter.com/NWSAlbuquerque/status/1078443383490781184 As this storm tracks through New Mexico and surrounding states, be sure to follow WeatherNation on Facebook and Twitter for the latest forecast updates. - Meteorologist Joe Astolfi
