Kristen’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

More sunshine and warmer temps through midweek

TUESDAY: Afternoon temperatures will be similar to Monday with the majority of the state sitting comfortably in the 50s & 60s. We’ll start the day with plenty of sunshine with a few more clouds building by late day. Isolated storms and showers are expected to develop over the higher elevations of the northern & central mountains and Southeastern Plains. Storm coverage will be limited, although the main threats will continue to be gusty, erratic winds and small hail/graupel. Overnight lows will fall into the 30s & 40s late tonight.

WEDNESDAY: A quiet day state-wide with mostly clear, sunny conditions expected across the entire region. Temperatures will continue to climb with most of us well above average for this time of year.

THURSDAY: Our next storm system will arrive from the west by Thursday afternoon – giving way to another round of showers and storms across western NM. Afternoon temperatures will be a touch cooler (1-5 degrees) compared to Wednesday, although, still very comfortable and majority of us keeping above the average.

FRIDAY: As our storm tracks east, so do our rain chances. Shower coverage looks to expand further east across central NM and parts of eastern NM. Another dip in high temperatures will leave the majority of NM and southern CO at or just barely above average.
