WEDNESDAY: Afternoon temperatures will be very comfortable with 60s and 70s over the northern half of the state and 70s and 80s filling in to the south. A cold front will begin to creep its way into the Northeastern Plains by late afternoon – likely to provide enough lift and moisture to fire a few thunderstorms. A few developed storms may have enough strength to turn severe – be sure to download the KRQE Weather app to stay up-to-date with these expected storms. For the rest of NM, expect mostly sunny skies to fill in through late afternoon.
THURSDAY: As our next storm system approaches from the west, increasing cloud cover and stronger winds will start to take over. Expect a mix of sun and clouds across most of the state with scattered showers likely to develop by late day. We’ll be fighting some gusty winds here in the Albuquerque-metro area which will likely hurt our rain chances – we’ll keep you updated on the progress of these showers. Afternoon temperatures will take a hit as the mentioned cold front continues to push across the state. Temperatures will drop a good 4-8 degrees state-wide.
FRIDAY: Another round of showers is expected to develop by late day with partly sunny to mostly cloudy conditions likely statewide. Friday will likely be the coolest day of the next seven with afternoon temperatures stuck in the 60s up and down the Rio Grande Valley.
WEEKEND: Our unsettled weather pattern will continue into the weekend with the possibility of another disturbance moving in by Sunday. We’ll be sure to fill you in on the details once we get closer.
