A strong ridge of high pressure continues to dominate our weather. Highs on Saturday will be well above average and in fact near records across a good portion of the state. Albuquerque is a good example of this, our record high for the date is 81° while our forecast high at the Sunport is 79.
The high will begin to lose its grip by Sunday allowing in a few more clouds in advance of our next storm system. In addition, winds will crank up as that storm comes in from the west coast. Right now it looks like the track of the system will be a little too far north to provide much precip but we could see a spot shower in on Monday. Below is a look how far above average our temps will be.
