Chris’ Saturday Night Forecast

Snow and rain will be tapering off across central and northern New Mexico tonight with Fog developing.   The fog could cause for some tough travel in the early morning so if you run into the fog you will want to use your low-beam headlights.  Any chance for showers tonight and on Sunday morning will be across southeast New Mexico.   Places like Roswell, Artesia, Carlsbad and Hobbs could have rain and even a few thunderstorms to start on Sunday.

Temperatures will rebound back to more seasonable highs on Sunday afternoon after a very cold start in the morning.   Temperatures will continue to climb to warmer than average highs by Monday afternoon.   Monday will be fairly nice with partly to mostly sunny skies and breezy conditions.  The break from the chilly temps, showers and wind will be short-lived however.   That’s because another storm system is going to move into the Four Corner by Monday night.

This storm system will bring another shot of rain, mountain snow wind and cooler temperatures for Tuesday.  There could be a widespread freeze across parts of central and northern New Mexico on Wednesday morning with temperatures dipping to freezing or even well below freezing!   We will continue to watch the temperature trends and keep you posted throughout the upcoming week!

Temperatures warm back up to warmer than normal highs by the end of next week with drier weather after Wednesday.
