Temperatures will continue to rise through midweek. We will top out around 80° in the Albuquerque metro area on Wednesday and beyond until the end of the work week. Clouds will be hard to come by as well with most areas enjoying mostly sunny skies.
The only cool down this week could be headed to the NE with a weak cold front. This front will edge into the NE on Thursday and possibly touch off a few storms. However, the front doesn’t look like a major player statewide.
The real action heats up over the weekend with a one…two storm punch headed our way. The track on these systems looks good but the moisture looks limited. That lack of juice means a chance for isolated showers but few areas are likely to see meaningful rain. The area to watch is again the NE. The storm combined with a back door cold front could produce some showers and storms. Here is what the models are painting for precip late Sunday.
