John’s Monday Afternoon Forecast


The winds slowly return to New Mexico over the next few days as a storm approaches the state. It will remain warm and dry across the state today and Tuesday. As winds increase, fire weather concerns will as well. Red Flag Warnings have been posted for much of the state today and Tuesday. The windiest day will be Wednesday as the storm system moves in.

Unfortunately, that storm system will not be a huge rain maker. The northwest corner of the state will be favored for some widely scattered showers Wednesday and Thursday, while the rest of the state will stay mostly dry. Temperatures will cool some with this storm. Thursday will be the coolest day with afternoon highs running about 5° below average.

The storm lifts out Friday and a westerly flow returns for the weekend. Temperatures will warm to above average again for the weekend, but the winds will remain breezy to occasionally windy. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
