Kristen’s Friday Morning Forecast

Pacific storm on the way for the weekend

FRIDAY: A weak cold front will continue its southwest trek over central and eastern NM, kicking up winds and cooling down temperatures as it passes. Morning temperatures are down to the 20s, 30s and 40s for most of the area with breezy conditions 10-20mph. Afternoon temperatures will rebound nicely with 60s and 70s scattered across the region. Mostly to partly sunny skies can be expected statewide with no significant rain chances in today’s forecast.

SATURDAY: Another warm day on tap with high temperatures warming back into the 70s and 80s across central and southern NM. A bit more cloud cover is expected Saturday afternoon, although, sunshine will still be able to be seen. A few showers and storms may fire near the NM/TX stateline by late day – we’ll watch for any developed storm to turn severe.

SUNDAY: A slight cool down can be expected in most areas with high temperatures dropping 2-4 degrees – however, that still leaves most of us with comfortable temps in the 60s and 70s. Our Pacific storm will near the state by late day allowing showers and storms to develop over the southern and southeastern portions of NM. Any developed activity is likely to continue and expand overnight into Monday.

MONDAY: Our late-weekend storm system will linger into Monday with showers possible to kick off the work week. Afternoon temperatures will also take a hit with this system with most of the area stuck in the 50s and 60s by Monday afternoon.

We’ll watch for a few lingering showers on Tuesday before we clear out and warm up by midweek.
