MONDAY: A quiet start to the work week with afternoon temperatures climbing to or just above average for this time of year – expect high temps to top out in the 40s, 50s and 60s statewide. Other than a few high clouds over southern NM, plan on plenty of sunshine through late day. Winds will stay relatively light in most areas, although, breezy to windy conditions are likely to fill in and around the higher terrain by nightfall.
TUESDAY: An even warmer day on tap with high temps topping out well into the 40s, 50s and 60s under a mostly sunny sky. Wind will be on the increase Tuesday through the rest of the work week.
WEDNESDAY: More cloud cover and increasing winds are expected through midweek as an approaching storm draws closer. Wednesday will likely be the warmest day of the work week before temps begin to tumble THU & FRI.
THANKSGIVING – WEEKEND: The mentioned storm & incoming cold front will combine to pump up rain and snow chances over some portions of the state. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty as far as the coverage and intensity of wintry precipitation goes Thanksgiving night through Saturday. At this moment, the Northern Mountains and Eastern Plains look to be most favored for a wintry mix and temps at or below freezing. If traveling, your best bet for a smooth ride will be leaving Wednesday and coming home Sunday.
We will be sure to bring you the latest updates on our Thanksgiving storm as they come – keep it on KRQE for those updates.
