Mark’s Friday evening forecast

A broad and slow moving trough will slide through the southwest this weekend. This trough will allow a series of smaller weather disturbances to move through the state this weekend. The first will impact northern areas later on in the day Saturday. This system will spread snow above 8,000′ in the Sangre De Cristo mountains. As far as the metro area goes, we could pick up a storm or two in the afternoon with partly cloudy skies.

By Sunday through itself will have moved over the state and this will allow a series of disturbances to kick over eastern NM. That will allow for the NE and the east slopes of the north to pick up some showers. We could even see some showers linger into Monday before things clear out.

Temps will stay in check thanks to the trough passing through winds will bump up to the breezy category as well. Highs will top out in the low 60’s through Monday with wind gusts to 40 mph by Sunday. Here is a look at what the European model expects to fall precip wise through Monday. Trending up!
