Another warm and windy day is ahead before changes start to move in on Tuesday.
Strong, southwesterly winds will crank up with gusts from 30-40 mph across the state. These southwesterly winds will keep temperatures warmer than normal to start the week.
A weather disturbance then moves in on Tuesday. This first wave of energy will be fairly week, but it will cause temperatures to start to fall back to seasonal afternoon highs along with more wind. This first weather disturbance will bring the chance for some spot showers across northern New Mexico and southern Colorado for Tuesday and Wednesday. These showers though look to be fairly limited.
A better shot at rain along with some high mountain snow will arrive on Thursday. That is when a stronger trough of low pressure will move into the Four Corners region bringing the chance at rain to Albuquerque and Santa Fe. This low will also drag in a Pacific Cold Front and this front will send temps tumbling back into the 50s, 60s and 70s for most of New Mexico on Thursday.
More wind and slightly warmer temperatures will return for next weekend.
