FRIDAY: A warmer start to the day than previous mornings as most of us are walking out the door to 40s and 50s. Afternoon temperatures will be similar to what we had on Thursday – expect 40s, 50s and 60s over northern NM / 60s and 70s across southern NM. Breezy to windy conditions are expected nearly statewide with the strongest (and possibly damaging) winds likely over the higher terrain. Rain and snow showers will begin creeping in from the Four Corners region this evening – pushing southwest across the state overnight. Showers will ride along a strong cold front attached to the storm. Expect much colder temps by the time we wake up Saturday.
SATURDAY: A mix of rain and snow showers will scatter over northern and western NM. We won’t be measuring snow in feet anywhere within statelines but we can expect a few inches over the higher terrain to the north and west. Afternoon temperatures will be significantly cooler than what we had this week – most of the state will not leave the 30s and 40s (and that’s at the warmest!)
SUNDAY: A drier but not warmer day ahead with high temperatures still stuck in the 30s and 40s. Cloud cover will linger but snow and rain will exit the state early.
