Tonight will be very cold yet again. Dry air and clear skies will result in negatives for some of the northern mountain valleys. We’ll end up with upper 20s in the Rio Grande Valley. The next two days will bring slightly warmer temperatures. However, a wind chill might cancel out the extra warmth. Wind gusts will reach nearly 40 mph between Moriarty and Santa Rosa on Thursday and Friday. Temperatures in the eastern plains will be dramatically cooler on Saturday from a cold front.
Our window for precipitation this week is small. We could get flurries on the eastern slopes of the Sangres Saturday night. There is also a chance of spot rain showers in the northeast. Cool weather kicks off next week. The outlook for Thanksgiving is still unclear.
