WEDNESDAY: A clear and cool start to the day with morning temperatures in the 30s, 40s and 50s. All eyes will be on an incoming cold front edging into the Northeast Plains – pushing south and west throughout the day. Temperatures will fall behind the front leaving behind afternoon highs in the 50s and 60s across northeast NM. A more noticeable cool down will kick in tomorrow. Winds will pick up as the front passes with gusty east canyon winds expected to rip across the Albuquerque-metro area late tonight into Thursday. Given the set-up, moisture will be hard to come by, although, we can’t rule out a handful of spot showers over the Southeast Plains.
THURSDAY: Likely to be the coolest day of the next seven! Expect high temperatures to be 15°-25° cooler across the Eastern Plains, 5°-10° cooler within central NM but a less than 5° difference further west. A mostly to partly sunny sky will blanket the state with a few spot showers lingering over southeast NM.
FRIDAY – WEEKEND: A quick rebound in the numbers with high temperatures climbing above average in most areas. Sunshine will dominate the forecast with no significant rain chances to mention.
