A warm day is ahead for New Mexico this afternoon. Temperatures are going to warm well into the 60s, 70s and 80s for many spots before the weather becomes unsettled this weekend.
First, a cold front is going to move into eastern New Mexico tomorrow. This cold front will pick up the wind and usher in cooler temperatures east of the central mountain chain. A few spot showers will be possible across the northern high terrain, but the biggest impacts will be the wind and cooler temperatures.
Temperatures will stay cool behind the front across the east on Saturday while the rest of the state will contend with breezy to windy conditions.
The next weather maker will then move in Saturday night into Sunday. This storm system will crank up the wind on Sunday causing for high fire danger and blowing dust.. This storm system will pass farther to the north. So while there could be a few spot showers across the north, the bigger impacts will once again be the wind, fire danger and falling temperatures.
Monday will then be mild with temperatures warming back up into the middle of next week.
