January 23rd 2019 – Coming off a day of temps far below average on Tuesday, Wednesday will feel a bit better with a slight warm-up getting underway across the state. Expect high temps to climb into the low to mid-40s across the ABQ-metro, which is still below average for this time of the year.
Winds will still be breezy at times with sustained speeds ranging between 10-20mph. Wind could become enhanced this evening just east of the eastern mountains with gusts exceeding 40mph.
A weak cold front will move across New Mexico (from the northeast) on Thursday. There could be a few light snow showers for the northern mountains and northeast but expext accumulations to be minimal. Another cold front will move into New Mexico on Saturday with similar impacts.
Temps will warm up by Sunday before a modified arctic airmass moves into New Mexico late in the day on Monday. It is possible snow may fall with this front but we are still several days out so keep checking back for updates.
