NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A storm system passing over Colorado Monday night will bring breezy conditions today and Tuesday afternoon.
Warmer weather has been returning to New Mexico this weekend as a weak ridge of high pressure built over the state. A storm system is approaching today though, which will increase the winds through this afternoon. The core of the storm will pass through Colorado, but a speed maximum in the jet stream will pass over northern New Mexico tonight, keeping the winds ripping across the peaks of the mountains. Some of these winds will make it down to the surface, especially across northeastern New Mexico by Tuesday afternoon. This storm system will bring a slight drop in temperatures for Tuesday, along with very light snow in the mountains along the Colorado state line.
