Eric's Friday Morning Forecast

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – We’re waking up to mild temperatures and muggier conditions across the state, but drier air will win out Friday reducing the risk of showers. We’re going to see significant weather changes this weekend behind a cold front beginning Saturday. This will not only increase moisture statewide for days but also dip temperatures anywhere from 15-30 degrees! Highs will struggle in the middle 60s by early next week for northeast NM with daily afternoon storms lingering.

Meanwhile, this weekend will also feature some strong to severe thunderstorms east of the Sandias especially near Santa Rosa and Tucumcari. Our primary threats will once again be larger hail and damaging wind gusts over 60 mph by Saturday evening. All main ingredients for at least some severe weather are coming together in that direction.
