Chris’ Friday Afternoon Forecast

It was the coldest morning of Fall for most of New Mexico on Friday and it is going to stay on the chilly side as we head into the weekend.    It will look really nice out for your Friday afternoon, but you will need to hang onto the jacket as the cool temperatures will continue for this afternoon.   Tonight will be another cold night for most of the state with lows dipping back into the 30s and or near freezing once again for Saturday morning.

A weak cold front is going to keep the cool temperatures locked in place for Saturday.   This front could trigger some spot showers in the eastern half of the state tomorrow while the breezes will be kicking up out of the east for central New Mexico.   By Sunday, the winds will be shifting out of the south, southwest.   This southerly wind will help boost highs back to average for the second half of the weekend.

We will watch the potential for another storm system to roll in for Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.   The storm system could bring more mountain snow to the north with rain in the valley locations.   Stay with KRQE for more weather updates. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
