MONDAY: Despite the cool start, we’re looking at a very comfortable afternoon with high temps topping out in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Plan on nothing but sunshine across the state – we’ll be lucky to even see clouds today!
TUESDAY: As our next storm system approaches from the west, winds will kick up and cloud cover will increase. No significant rain chances expected Tuesday, although, expect a mix of sun and clouds throughout the day.
WEDNESDAY: The mentioned storm will clip northern NM bringing back rain and snow chances to the forecast. Lower elevation rain and higher elevation snow is expected Wednesday afternoon and into the overnight hours. A good amount of cloud cover and rain activity will keep high temperatures cool across a good chuck of the state – most of us can expect high temps to top out in the 50s and 60s. Overnight lows will also be a big talker as most within northern, western and central NM will fall near or even below the freezing mark. With this expected widespread freeze, it’ll be a good to idea to start thinking about bringing in your sensitive plants.
THURSDAY: A handful of rain and snow showers will linger into Thursday, although, drier air will start to fill in behind the departing storm. Temperatures will be even cooler with most down to the 40s, 50s and 60s. Another very cold night is expected Thursday night into Friday – most of the Rio Grande Valley likely to hit the freezing mark once again.
