TUESDAY: A cool start to the day with morning temperatures in the 30s, 40s and 50s under a mostly to partly clear sky. We’ll sneak in enough sunshine to help warm temperatures back into the 60s, 70s and 80s – a few degrees below Monday but still above average for this time of year. Cloud cover will continue to thicken over the southern 2/3rds of the state. There is a slight chance of a few sprinkles working in over south-central and eastern NM this afternoon, however, coverage and intensity looks to be very limited.
WEDNESDAY: A much cooler day on tap with afternoon highs likely to stay in the 60s in the Albuquerque-metro area. All eyes will be on a strong storm in Arizona and an incoming cold front out east – combining to help boost rain chances over eastern and southern NM.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY: Widespread to even statewide rain chances are possible as the mentioned storm continues to pump moisture over NM, helping fuel showers and storms. Afternoon temperatures will fall to, or even just below, average for this time of year.
