Kristen’s Friday Morning Forecast

Record high temperatures possible this weekend

FRIDAY: A chilly start in the 20s and 30s under a clear sky to start our Friday – but layer it up today: light jacket to start, T-shirt this afternoon. High temperatures will soar well above the average today with comfortable temperatures expected state-wide. Light winds over western and central NM will stay beneath 15 mph while eastern portions of the state can expect winds only a touch stronger 10-20 mph.

— Southern Colorado: mid- to upper 50s / clear sky
— Northwest Plateau: upper 50s to mid-60s / mostly sunny sky
— Southwest: upper 60s to low 70s / clear sky
— Southeast: upper 60s to upper 70s (*record temps possible*) / mostly sunny sky
— Northeast Plains: upper 60s to low 70s (*record temps possible*) / mostly sunny sky
— Northern Mountains: low 50s to low 60s / mostly sunny sky
— East Mountains: upper 50s to low 60s / clear sky
— Albuquerque-metro: low to upper 60s / clear sky

SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Plenty of sunshine can be expected across the area as high pressure settles in. Winds will be a bit breezy east of the Central Mountains as high pressure slips south and westerly down-slope winds kick in. Afternoon temperatures will be well above the average for this time of year (listed above).

NEXT WEEK: Our next work week will start off quiet, but changes will move in by midweek. A storm system will near NM by Wednesday, giving way to increasing rain/snow chances and falling temps. The track and intensity of this storm is still in question – we’ll be sure to keep you informed through the weekend.
