Warmer Weather Returns This Week

Temperatures will continue to warm back up to seasonal highs on Monday and Tuesday.   Before warmer temperatures arrive for the beginning of the week, Monday morning will start out cold with areas of fog.   After some chilly temps and morning fog tomorrow, skies will be full of sunshine by the afternoon.   The sunshine will help boost temperatures back into the 60s, 70s and 80s.

A cold front will impact eastern New Mexico Tuesday night into Wednesday.   This cold front will drop temperatures back to below normal highs for at least the eastern half of the state by mid-week.  There will also be a chance for some spot showers across northern and northeast New Mexico when the front moves in.

The cool down in the east will be short-lived.   A ridge of high pressure will build over the Desert Southwest by week’s end.  This means more sunshine and warmer than average temperatures heading into the first weekend of May.
