FRIDAY: Afternoon temps will be 2-5 degrees warmer in most areas with majority of the state at or above average. Spotty to scattered storms are possible near the NM/AZ stateline and over the higher terrain late this afternoon into the evening hours. Coverage will still be very limited, but areas further north and west are favored.
SATURDAY: More spotty to scattered showers and storms are likely to fire up over western and northern NM once again. Lack of significant moisture will limit coverage. High temperatures will continue to climb – western and central NM warming into the 80s and 90s while majority of the Eastern Plains tops out in the 90s and low triple digits.
