A few weak showers are doing their best to hold together over the southwestern corner of the state, however, accumulations are not impressive — sprinkle to light rain at best. Winds are light this morning, 5-10 mph, with slightly stronger winds in the northern mountains, 10-20 mph.
TUESDAY AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES:
— Southern Colorado: upper 40s to low 50s

Mostly to partly sunny skies can be expected across the state — clearer conditions can be found across eastern NM. A few spot showers are likely over western portions of NM, although showers will not be very strong (accumulation: <0.5″). A cold front will move in late Wednesday into Thursday dropping temperatures back below the average. Moisture streaming in from the west will allow for increasing rain chances both Friday and Saturday – initially falling as rain before turning into a rain/snow mix Friday night. Saturday looks to be a bit soggy for a good portion of NM with a wintry mix continuing through late early Sunday morning. Afternoon temperatures will plummet to the 30s and 40s by Friday – staying cool through the weekend.
