Monday’s highs were well below average across most areas of the state. This will be changing in a big way starting tomorrow. Temps will rise rapidly over the next three days. Here in the metro area we topped out in the mid 60’s today. We will warm to the low 70’s by Tuesday and the high 70’s by Wednesday and Thursday.
The main area of concern through the work week will be rising fire danger. Along with the drying air mas we will have rising temps and rising winds. This will likely lead to at least fire weather watches over eastern NM.
As far as storms go there is not much to brag about until the weekend and even then it looks a lit shaky. Here is a look at the 7-day precip outlook for the state. The only area that could get decent rain or snow looks like the northern mountains.
