Kristen’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

Critical fire danger with a chance of rain/snow...

TUESDAY: A strong storm sitting to the northwest will cause winds to crank across New Mexico today. Sustained winds will range between 25-35mph / gusts 40-50mph in lower elevations while areas within the higher terrain can expect sustained winds 35-45mph / gusts 50-60mph. Gusty winds and dry conditions (humidity <10%) will elevate fire danger across New Mexico. Afternoon temperatures, although slightly cooler than Monday, will be mild in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Spotty to scattered rain and snow showers will move in over the Four Corners region, although, accumulation looks to be light.

WEDNESDAY: A strong overnight cold front will drop afternoon temperatures 10-20degrees statewide. The good news? Winds will still be breezy… but not nearly as strong as what we have on tap Tuesday. A mix of sun and clouds will blanket the state with only a slight chance for a few pop up showers over the Northern Mountains and Southern Colorado.

THURSDAY: Winds will continue to relax and temperatures will begin to warm again as we finish the work week.
