Kristen's Wednesday Morning Forecast

Rain, snow & wind return to New Mexico...

March 14th 2018 - This week's temperature climb will continue Wednesday with afternoon highs in the 60s and 70s for most locales. The big story, however, will be the increase in winds as a storm system digs deeper in the Pacific Northwest. Expect sustained winds to reach 10-20mph in the Rio Grande Valley... likely to be stronger within the higher terrain and Eastern Plains Wednesday afternoon.

The good news? An increase in moisture will allow spotty to scattered showers to develop late Wednesday into Thursday over southern Colorado and northwest New Mexico. High mountain snow and low elevation rain is expected... with western slopes favored for the best shot at significant and accumulating snowfall. Albuquerque's best chance at rain will come Thursday afternoon.

In addition to the rain and snow, strong winds will rip across the state on Thursday. A WIND ADVISORY is set to kick in Thursday afternoon for southwest & south-central NM.

Breezy to windy conditions will continue Friday while rain and snow showers clear. Expect cooler temperatures (but remaining near to above average) to finish the work week.

Another storm system will clip the state over the weekend resulting in another shot at snow for the mountains. The majority of us can expect the impacts to be limited to a drop in temperatures and the continuation of strong winds.
