ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) -The wind continues to roar throughout the state Monday after a weekend of gusts up to 60 miles per hour in some place, including the metro.
The winds really ramped up, which meant blowing dust and some damaged trees. Broken limbs littered parks and sidewalks Monday morning, and split branches made a mess of the ground.
The winds will continue with gusts up to 60 mph for some parts of the state Monday. Below average temperatures are also on tap for the afternoon. Though the storm has departed, it is slowly leaving the state allowing a persistent northwesterly flow to dominate our weather.
Tuesday will feature less windy, but still breezy conditions. Temperatures will stay on the cool side. A freeze warning has been issued for Bernalillo County and will be in place until 9 a.m. Tuesday.
A final piece of energy will work through the state Thursday. This will deliver another quick round of showers and a final dose of high winds.
The northwesterly flow finally breaks down just in time for the weekend. Temperatures will warm to near or above average, winds will come down, and sunny skies will dominate.
