NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Temperatures will climb into the 80s and 90s for most of the state. Several spots will break and tie records for hot, daily high temperatures. A weak cool front will cool the east side of the state by a few degrees tomorrow, but all around, this week is going to stay much warmer than normal. Northwest winds will be breezy and even windy for northwest and central New Mexico.
Red flag warnings will be in effect from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. for the east mountains and eastern highlands. This includes the Sandia and Manzano Mountains to as far east as Cedar Crest. Winds will get gusty tomorrow morning, as the backdoor front moves into eastern New Mexico. Winds may gust around 25-35 mph, especially through the Tijeras Canyon. Wildfire haze will drift south from Colorado with the front, leaving skies hazier Tuesday, especially in eastern New Mexico.
