WEDNESDAY: Another warm afternoon ahead as high temperatures top out in the 60s, 70s and 80s in most areas… even the 90s expected across the far southeast! Mostly to partly sunny conditions will blanket the state with light winds out of the west-northwest keeping between 5-15mph. A cold front moving in from the northeast will help trigger a round of spot thunderstorms over the Northeastern Plains with the possibility of these storms turning strong to severe. Spotty showers are also possible over the Northern Mountains.
THURSDAY: The mentioned cold front will bring a big time cool down to the eastern half of the state as temperatures drop anywhere from 10-20° from Wednesday’s highs. Expect 60s, 70s and 80s to return for western and central NM while eastern NM sees less of the 90s and more of the 60s & 70s.
FRIDAY: We’ll finish the week with a big time warm-up as afternoon temperatures climb above the seasonal average to the upper 80s in ABQ. A mostly to partly sunny sky will blanket the state with increasing moisture streaming in from the south. Spotty to scattered showers will breakout over the far southwest – stretching further north and east overnight into Saturday.
