The storm system that caused all the wind across New Mexico today is now exiting the west. Behind the system will be cold air and freezing temperatures Friday morning. Albuquerque will bottom out in the mid-20s Friday morning with highs in the low 50s by the afternoon. Over the weekend high pressure will edge toward the state and boost temperatures. Eventually we will top out around 60° by Sunday. Another wetter storm system is on the way for the beginning of next week.
