Active weather returns to New Mexico as we move into the weekend. However, today will feature relatively quieter weather as temps start to warm up. By Thursday, afternoon highs will soar to well above average, especially east of the central mountain chain. The warm up is due to a westerly flow that will also deliver strong winds to the east. Winds will gust up to 65 mph in eastern New Mexico Thursday and Friday. Blowing dust and an elevated fire danger will be some of the concerns.
