THURSDAY: A quiet start to the day with morning temperatures in the 30s, 40s and 50s under a mostly clear sky. Expect afternoon highs to be similar to what unfolded Wednesday with widespread 60s, 70s and 80s on the map. Sunshine will blanket the state through noon before a handful of clouds develop by late afternoon / evening. A few spot showers are still possible over the Northern Mountains and Northeast Plains, however, coverage will be very limited.
FRIDAY: A storm moving inland over the west coast will pull in moisture ahead of it – increasing cloud cover, spot showers and isolated thunderstorms over western NM. The storm itself will jump north and not hit the state directly, however, it’ll stay close enough to help showers break out west and give the rest of us a round of gusty winds. The good news? Temperatures will stay comfy in the 60s, 70s and 80s.
SATURDAY: Spot showers will still be possible near the AZ/NM stateline and higher terrain, although, most of us will stay dry under a mix of sun and clouds to start the weekend. Temperatures will stay near to just above average for this time of year.
