John’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast


The weather will be mostly quiet over the next couple of days. With more sunshine and a developing westerly flow, temperatures will warm today and Wednesday. Expect highs to reach the mid 90s in Albuquerque Wednesday afternoon, while the south tops out in the low 100s.

A back door cold front will push in from the east Thursday. This will bring temperatures back down. But it will also lead to better storm chances from the central mountain chain eastward. After only spotty storms today and Wednesday, expect more scattered coverage on Thursday.

We return to a westerly flow Friday. This will push the moisture back out of the state and warm our temperatures back up for the weekend. Some moisture will try to edge back into the state by Sunday and early next week, but will barely reach New Mexico. This leaves the best shot of storms across the communities on the far eastern edge of the state. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
