Kristen’s Thursday Evening Forecast

Quiet finish to week before weekend storm moves in...

THURSDAY NIGHT: A mostly to partly clear sky will blanket the state with temperatures falling to the teens, 20s and 30s overnight. No significant rain or snow expected.

FRIDAY: A quiet day to finish the work week as high pressure builds overhead. Expect an afternoon of mixed sun & clouds with afternoon highs in the 40s, 50s and 60s. Moisture will attempt to creep north into southern NM by late day… and although not much is expected, its worth mentioning the possibility of a few spot showers over south-central and southeast NM.

SATURDAY: Our next big weather-maker will begin its approach from the west. Increasing cloud cover with the possibility of a few embedded showers will be the story for western NM while the remainder of the state sits comfortably under a partly to mostly sunny sky. Afternoon temperatures will be slightly warmer than what was felt to finish the week – expect widespread 50s, 60s and 70s (most above average for this time of year).

SUNDAY: The mentioned storm will cross over the northwestern NM… bringing in the opportunity for high country snow and lower elevation mix. Best shot at rain and snow will be for those within western and northern NM… not as likely further east.

Heads up! Temperatures are expected to take a tumble by early next week (we’re talking 30s and 40s nearly statewide!) It’ll be a good idea to get outside and enjoy the mild temperatures while we have them this weekend. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
