Christopher’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

Video Forecast

January 16th 2019 – A disturbance exiting northern NM today will allow snow showers to continue over the higher terrain of northern NM — additional accumulations of 1″ are possible above 7500ft. The majority of us further south will be left with a mostly to partly sunny sky with temps near average for this time of  year (mostly 30s, 40s and 50s — far southern NM likely to reach 60s, even low 70s due to a weak downslope wind!). A Wind Advisory is in place for the Sangre de Cristo Mountains + northeast/east-central highlands for strong westerly winds reaching sustained speeds of 25-35mph / gusting up to 50mph.

A few leftover showers are possible over the Northern Mountains on Thursday while the majority of us dry out and warm up. Expect high temperatures to peak for the week on Thursday afternoon — Albuquerque topping out near 50°.

Our next storm will arrive on Friday bringing valley rain and mountain snow to NM. Breezy to windy conditions will accompany this storm with cooler temps to fill in for the weekend.
