A storm system will pass well to our north on Wednesday. This will be one of the factors that will be lead to a significant up tick in wind speeds for most of New Mexico. Winds will top out around 35 mph in the metro area and up to 50 mph in SW New Mexico. Drier air will also flow in tomorrow leading to high fire danger all across the state.
By Thursday winds will die down and temps may well dip just a bit closer to seasonal averages. All areas should enjoy mostly sunny skies. Friday looks pretty good as well with lighter winds and mostly sunny skies.
The weekend definitely holds more intrigue. Models differ on a storm headed our way. The European model likes this system to drop into the state. Should the track you see in this image pan out we could pick up not only wind but some rain too!
