Kristen’s Friday Morning Forecast

Another round of severe weather possible out east...


FRIDAY: With the help of an incoming cold front, spotty to scattered storms are likely to fire over the Eastern Plains this afternoon. There is potential for storms to turn strong to severe – threats: hail, gusty winds, frequent lightning, heavy rain and isolated tornadoes. Areas within central and western NM will stay mostly dry under a sunny sky. We’ll keep an eye out for a few stray storms to wander over central NM but coverage will be very limited. Expect afternoon temperatures to top out in the 60s, 70s and 80s.

SATURDAY & SUNDAY: Spotty storms will be possible near the eastern stateline, although, fewer storms expected compared to recent days. Majority of the state will see plenty of sunshine and temperatures at or just above average (60s, 70s and 80s).

NEXT WEEK: A storm digging out west with the help of a high pressure system further east will combine to improve rain chances here in the Land of Enchantment. Moisture being pulled north will allow scattered showers and storms to develop late Tuesday into Wednesday – details to come as we get closer.
