ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The big story over the next 24 hours weather-wise will be a cool down across the state. Cool air is flowing through northern New Mexico on its way down to the south.
In the metro area, we will top out on Tuesday with temperatures in the mid 60s. But the cool down will not be long-lasting. A strong ridge of high-pressure will begin to build in by Wednesday and last through the remainder of the work week.
This high will block all moisture to the north and allow for another warm-up. The difference in this week’s high-pressure is the fact that the warm-up will not be quite as significant. We will top out with temperatures in the low 70s by Thursday and Friday.
By the weekend things could change with the storm system dropping down from the northwest. At this point though, it doesn’t appear to bring significant moisture. Below is a look at our ridge of high pressure.
