Kristen’s Wednesday Morning Forecast

Even warmer... but next weather-maker moves in next 48 hours

WEDNESDAY: Ridging building overhead will keep weather fairly quiet today. Morning temperatures in the 20s, 30s and 40s will warm to the 50s, 60s and 70s by late day. Expect a mix of sun and clouds to blanket the state with breezy to windy conditions over northern NM. A weak cold front will try and sneak into the Eastern Plains but will do little in the way of significant changes (a few degrees cooler over eastern NM but drop in temperatures will be brief). No significant rain or snow expected.

THURSDAY: Breezy to windy conditions will continue to favor northern NM as strong winds within the jet stream mix down. A mostly to partly sunny sky can be expected with above average temperatures nearly statewide (widespread 50s, 60s and 70s). Our next storm system will begin to close in on us from the northwest – expect increasing cloud cover and a few spot showers over the Northwest Plateau and southern CO by late day/evening.

FRIDAY: The mentioned storm will bring in significant changes to finish the week. Expect breezy to windy conditions (strong to damaging winds possible) statewide with increasing rain/snow chances returning to northern and western NM. Snow levels will stay relatively high through the day (8000ft) before dropping behind a cold front by Friday evening. Temperatures will cool a bit to finish the week… expect a bigger drop in temperatures over the weekend.
