ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A ridge of high-pressure will set up over the Southwest in the next few days.
That ridge will take cold temperatures and start to boost them well above average by the time we get Wednesday and Thursday.
The big story heading into Tuesday however, will be the cold start to the day with temperatures across the state in the 30s and 40s.
Highs on Tuesday will remain cool in the 60s and low 70s under a northerly flow. But Wednesday and Thursday will be a different story with the westerly flow pushing temperatures into the warm category.
Our next storm appears to be off quite a ways off likely late in the weekend and into the beginning of next week. Below is a look at our impressive if only temporary ridge.
