MONDAY: Overnight rain/snow mix showers continue to linger over the Jemez and southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains this morning while the remainder of the state wakes up to cool temperatures and a cloudy sky. It’ll be a good idea to grab your raincoat / umbrella before heading out the door as showers will continue to develop on and off through the day. Favorable rain/snow chances will reside within northern and northeastern NM, although, spot showers are possible elsewhere. Afternoon temperatures will be noticeably cooler than what was felt over the weekend – expect 50s, 60s and 70s to stretch statewide. As a cold front dips south into the state, winds will strengthen to 15-25mph with stronger east canyon winds expected in the ABQ-metro area by late night.
TUESDAY: A storm approaching from the west will slide across southern NM, increasing rain and storm chances as it passes. Scattered to widespread showers are expected with the possibility of thunderstorms in the mix as well. Afternoon temperatures will be near or just below average for this time of year.
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY: Drier air working in over the state will clear out the clouds and showers, making way for a full day of sunshine and warmer temperatures.
