MONDAY: Afternoon temperatures will warm to near average this afternoon – leaving most of the state well into the 70s, 80s and 90s. Moisture streaming in from the south will allow for a good crop of spotty showers and storms to develop over western and central NM this afternoon, favoring the higher terrain. Winds will stay light (5-15mph) and variable through the day. Although we should see some improvements in air quality, our hazy sky will not disappear completely. If you are easily irritated by smoke, it will be a good idea to limit time spent outdoors – particularly for areas within northern New Mexico.
TUESDAY: Afternoon temperatures will stay put in the 70s, 80s and 90s statewide with a mix of sun and clouds overhead. Another round of spotty afternoon storms will favor western and central NM.
MIDWEEK: As high pressure continues to build over the state, drier conditions will begin to settle in. Isolated storms will still be possible, however, coverage will be limited – higher terrain is favored for a slight chance of storms.
