TUESDAY: A quiet start to the day with morning temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s under a clear sky. Plenty of sunshine will fill in over the state helping to afternoon highs into the 70s, 80s and 90s. Winds out of the west-southwest will reach speeds of 15-25mph this afternoon. These breezy conditions combined with low humidity will increase our fire danger – particularly over eastern and southern NM. No significant rain or thunderstorm chances to mention of.
RED FLAG WARNING is in effect for the Eastern Plains beginning 1PM through 9PM Tuesday due to southwest winds 20-30mph / gusts +35mph and low humidity <10%.
WEDNESDAY: Another day of breezy to windy conditions under a mostly sunny sky. Afternoon temperatures will be at or just slightly below normal for this time of year – leaving most of us in the 60s, 70s and 80s. A few spot storms are likely to develop over the far Northwest Plateau and Northern Mountains, however, accumulation will be hard to come by. If showers do develop, most look to be virga showers (too dry to see any rain reach the ground).
THURSDAY: A mostly to partly sunny sky will stretch from stateline to stateline with cooler temps across the region – most of us will fall below normal for this time of year (50s, 60s and 70s).
