Cold air in place behind our latest storm will lead to a very cold start to the day on Friday. Lows Friday morning will be at or below freezing across most of northern and central NM. Here in the metro we will bottom out in the high 20’s in the valley and low 30’s in the heights. You might want to cover or take in any sensitive plants.
Friday afternoon will warm a bit over what we had temp wise on Thursday with highs in the low 60’s. Partly to mostly sunny skies will be the rule as we are between storm systems. By Saturday winds will ramp up once again as another trough moves into the southwest. Showers will break out over northern sections late Saturday and Sunday. Showers will then spread east Sunday as well. This will not a huge storm but it should pack moisture over a wider area than this last system.
Scattered showers will be possible across eastern NM into early Monday. In fact, models are now picking up on a little more precip over the NE. Here is a look at the accumulated precipitation product from the ECMWF.
