TUESDAY: A cool start to the day with morning temperatures in the 30s, 40s and 50s under a partly clear sky. If you’re headed out to the polls early… grab a jacket! It’ll take awhile for our temperatures to warm up… eventually topping out in the 50s, 60s and 70s by late day. The cold front that brought us the cooler temperatures and overnight winds will continue to clear the state… and as it does, winds will slowly come down in the ABQ-metro. No significant rain chances are anticipated within statelines.
WEDNESDAY: Sunshine will dominate over the northern half of the state while cloud cover creeps in over southern NM – this all thanks to a weak storm moving west out of Texas, hovering over the southern stateline. This will not be a widespread rain event but there is potential for a few spot showers to fire over the Southeast Plains. The majority of the state can expect temperatures to top out near or just below average in the 50s and 60s.
THURSDAY: A similar day to Wednesday with a few spot showers south but sunshine and drier conditions expected north. Afternoon temperatures will continue to cool with highs down to the upper 50s in the Albuquerque-metro area.
