Kristen’s Friday Afternoon Forecast

Warm and breezy Easter weekend

FRIDAY: Afternoon temperatures will be 10-15 degrees cooler today compared to Thursday thanks to our overnight cold front – leaving most of the state in the 50s and 60s (some 70s scattered across southern NM). Although winds will be significantly lighter than what was felt yesterday, winds will still be noticeable with speeds reaching 15-20mph by late day.

SATURDAY: Temperatures will quickly rebound into the weekend with widespread 60s and 70s settling in over the Land Of Enchantment. Mostly to partly sunny skies may give way to one or two pop up showers, although, coverage and intensity will be very limited. Breezy conditions will continue state-wide with sustained speeds ranging from 10-20mph.

EASTER SUNDAY: A cool start but a nice afternoon in the 60s and 70s. Unfortunately, strong winds will plague our Easter Sunday with sustained speeds exceeding +20mph for many of us. (Be very careful with those outside BBQs!) Mostly sunny conditions can be expected area-wide.

NEXT WEEK: A warm start to the work week with temperatures keeping above normal. Winds will once again be the big talker with sustained speeds exceeding +20mph. Critical fire danger will be of most concern beginning Sunday into the start of next week.
