WEDNESDAY: As dry air filters in from the west, storm chances will continue to dwindle. Northeast and east-central NM will be favored for afternoon storms and showers — a few isolated storms may have enough strength to turn severe. A “MARGINAL RISK” for isolated severe storms has been posted for northeast/east-central NM. For the majority of the state, heat will be the big talker today as high temperatures climbs +5 degrees from what was felt Tuesday afternoon — leaving most of the state well into the 80s and 90s.
THURSDAY: As high pressure nears and builds over western NM, hot and dry conditions will continue for a good portion of the state. Spotty showers and storms are still possible over east-central and southeast NM — we’ll be watching for a few isolated storms to turn severe by late day. Once again, temperatures continue to climb with another round of 90s expected for central and southern portions of the state, only slightly cooler in the 70s and 80s for northern NM.
FRIDAY: Hot and dry conditions will dominate statewide with afternoon highs climbing well into the 80s, 90s… and even low triple digits for some further south!
