Warmer weather will return to New Mexico to begin the week with some spots getting close to record afternoon highs. That’s because an area of high pressure will move in for Monday and Tuesday. This high pressure system will keep temperatures warm and conditions mostly dry to begin the week. High temperatures will be running 10°-15° warmer than seasonal averages tomorrow and Tuesday.
Another storm system will move into the state on Wednesday. This will bring a better shot at rain and mountain snow to a larger portion of New Mexico. After showers on Wednesday, temperatures will drop to seasonal or even colder than average highs for Thursday. Dry air then returns along with warmer weather for next weekend.
