The first freeze of Fall is ahead for Albuquerque and it will be the coldest night for most of New Mexico.
The clear skies, dry conditions and colder air mass will allow temperatures to finally drop below freezing in Albuquerque tonight and into Sunday morning. This will be Albuquerque’s 3rd latest freeze on record with the latest on record of the Fall season still standing at November 22nd set in 2007. Other spots across northern New Mexico will be feeling temperatures in the single digits and teens including places like Farmington, Gallup and Grants along with some mountain communities.
Temperatures will stay cool tomorrow afternoon before warmer weather returns for Thanksgiving week. High temperatures this week will be 5°-10° warmer than average heading into Thanksgiving on Thursday. The good news is that travel for the holiday in New Mexico and around the Southwest looks pretty quiet as the weather stays mild and dry into next weekend.
