Albuquerque finally had its first freeze Friday morning, which is the third latest on record for the metro. It was also the first time Albuquerque dipped below freezing since March 31st! The chill will stay in the air for your Friday afternoon with more cold temperatures that will be below freezing waking up early on Saturday morning.
Temperatures will start to moderate back to more seasonable highs for Saturday and Sunday afternoon. The slightly warmer temperatures will be thanks to an area of high pressure that will build over the Southwest. This high will eventually push temperatures back to warmer than normal highs by Sunday afternoon.
A low pressure system will then move through the state on Monday. This will be mostly a warm storm system for New Mexico bringing scattered rain to most of the state to begin next week. The highest elevations of the Northern Mountains will have a better shot for snow Monday into early Tuesday. This weather maker moves out by mid-week that means Thanksgiving is looking sunny and slightly warmer than normal.
