Chris’ Friday Afternoon Forecast

High pressure has returned and it is going to have a pretty good grip on our weather for the weekend.   Temperatures Friday afternoon are already 10° – 20° warmer in eastern New Mexico and many areas will top out in the 50s and 60s for Friday. Temperatures will continue to climb above average over the weekend before a cold front moves in on Monday into Tuesday.   Right now, it looks like the models are backing away from the intensity of the system, but there’s still a chance for snow in the Northern Mountains and a rain/snow mix in eastern New Mexico.   In Albuquerque, we will have the shot for spot showers with breezy and cooler temperatures.   We’ll continue to keep you posted. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
