Kristen’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

Brief cool down & spotty rain/snow Wednesday

TUESDAY: All you will need this afternoon is a T-shirt or tank top as afternoon temperatures climb well above the average. Take advantage of the “spring-like” temps today as they are gone tomorrow! Overnight lows will cool to the mid- to upper 30s.

WEDNESDAY: An overnight cold front will track southwest across the state through the day tomorrow, allowing much cooler air to filter in behind it. Afternoon temperatures will drop more than 10 degrees for many across eastern and central NM  leaving most with high temps near or just below average for this time of year. Although moisture is trending upwards with our incoming system, it does not look to pack a significant punch with only a few snow showers possible over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains (favorable for eastern slopes) and Northeastern Plains. Winds will be of most concern for the Albuquerque-metro area as sustained winds exceed +20mph and gusts surpass the 40mph mark. Partly to mostly sunny conditions can be expected area-wide. Overnight lows will fall to the upper 20s to mid-30s.

THURSDAY: Clouds and any remaining rain or snow will taper off from north to south giving way to mostly sunny conditions across the region. Afternoon temperatures will spend another day near average before rebounding quickly into Friday. Winds will be much more relaxed Thursday afternoon – speeds generally ranging from 10-20mph.

FRIDAY: A gorgeous day is on tap with high temperatures climbing above average – majority of the state in the 50s & 60s with plenty of sunshine to go around.
