Kristen’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

Midweek cool down for central & eastern NM

WEDNESDAY: A much different day for those east of the Central Mountains as cooler air continues to fill in behind Tuesday’s cold front. High temperatures will fall well below average today with most of northeast and east-central NM stuck in the 60s and 70s – southeastern NM will only make it to the 80s this afternoon. Central NM (including the Albuquerque-metro area) will be ~10 degrees cooler than what was felt Tuesday afternoon – expect afternoon highs to top out in the mid- to upper 80s. A few weak showers are possible over north-central and eastern NM (eastern slopes of higher terrain), however, activity is not expected to be strong or severe.

THURSDAY: Temperatures will rebound quickly over central and eastern NM with most areas near or just above average. Increasing moisture will allow for a few showers and storms to fire up over the higher terrain – coverage in the lower elevations will still be limited.

FRIDAY: Mostly to partly sunny conditions will fill in over the state while afternoon temperatures keep to near average (particularly toasty temps over the Eastern Plains). Rain chances will favor the northern and western portions of NM, gradually expanding east through the weekend. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
