ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - It has been a month since New Mexico’s largest city has had any rain or snow, and more than one third of the state continues to be entangled in severe to extreme drought.

Temperatures have been unseasonably warm and dry, but forecasters with the National Weather Service say that’s about to change.

A mass of cold air is expected to reach the northeast part of the state Wednesday night. It’s expected to press west and south through Thursday and bring with it some moisture.

Forecasters say the upslope precipitation isn’t looking significant, but anything will help.

As for snowpack in New Mexico’s mountain ranges, every basin - except for the high Sangre de Cristos and the headwaters of the Pecos River - are worse off than last year.
