Kristen’s Monday Morning Forecast

News

A mostly quiet start to our Monday with partly cloudy skies and mild morning temperatures in the 50s and 60s. Breezy to windy conditions will be favored Monday afternoon as southwest flow strengthens over the state. Expect southwest winds to range between 15-25mph in most locations, gusting up to 45mph. These winds in combination with dry conditions (relative humidity <15%) will result in high fire danger across NM. A RED FLAG WARNING is in effect from 11AM to 8PM Monday for all areas expect the Northwest Plateau and Northern Mountains.

More wind and high fire danger is expected Tuesday as our next big weather maker begins to near the Four Corners. Expect increasing cloud cover, gusty winds and a slight drop in temps Tuesday afternoon.

Starting late Tuesday night, showers will begin to develop over northern and western NM. On and off rain and high mountain snow will favor the north and west through the day Wednesday as well. The majority of us can expect more wind and cooler temps — most of us with temps below average by Wednesday/Thursday afternoon.
