Kristen’s Monday Afternoon Forecast

Fire danger increasing...

MONDAY: A quiet start to the new work week as temperatures top out in the 60s, 70s and 80s under a mostly sunny sky. High pressure will keep us fairly quiet weather-wise.

TUESDAY: A storm passing to the north will crank up the winds over New Mexico – expect sustained speeds to range between 15-25mph across western and central NM / 20-30+mph throughout eastern NM and higher elevations. Gusty winds combined with low humidity will raise fire dangers, particularly across northern and central portions of the state. A few spot showers are possible within the northern tier of the Northern Mountains (near Red River stretching east over Raton Pass), although, coverage and intensity will be very limited with any rain/snow activity. Unseasonably warm temperatures continue statewide (60s, 70s and 80s).

WEDNESDAY: Winds will back off through midweek while temperatures cool by a few degrees. Sunshine will continue to dominate the forecast with no significant rain or snow to mention of.
