FRIDAY: A nice day to finish up the work week with afternoon temperatures in the 60s, 70s and 80s under a mostly sunny sky. A weak cold front sliding in over the Eastern Plains will cool temps 5°-10° – but even with a slight dip in the numbers, afternoon highs will still top out well above average. Winds will pick up as the mentioned front pushes through – expect breezy conditions at times (ABQ-metro: breezy conditions likely by this evening). No significant rain or snow expected, although, a few spot virga showers may struggle to develop over the higher terrain of northern NM.
SATURDAY: Warm temperatures and sunshine will stretch across the state – definitely a day to get outside!
SUNDAY: A near repeat day of Saturday… the only difference – more wind. Afternoon highs will stay well above seasonal averages in the 60s, 70s and 80s.
