Kristen’s Friday Morning Forecast

Weather Video Forecast

FRIDAY: A mostly quiet and mild start to the day with morning temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s across the state. With enough sunshine and high-pressure building in from the south (southwest flow over NM), afternoon temperatures will soar above average with most of us in the 70s and 80s by late afternoon. There will be enough leftover moisture and daytime heating to allow a few spotty storms to develop over the mountains, pushing east into the Plains. We’ll keep an eye on storms in eastern NM as instability could make for some strong thunderstorms. The Albuquerque-metro could see an isolated storm Friday afternoon/evening… but coverage will be extremely limited (not enough to rearrange your outdoor plans).

SATURDAY: A weak disturbance crossing north will allow another round of showers and thunderstorms to develop over the Northern Mountains. Outside of the higher terrain, the majority of us can expect a mostly sunny sky, warm temps and generally light winds (5-15mph).

SUNDAY: More sunshine will blanket the state with afternoon highs remaining above average. The big story Sunday will be the uptick in winds with breezy to windy conditions expected in almost all locales.

EARLY NEXT WEEK: Our next big weather maker looks to near the state Monday into Tuesday. Temperatures will drop, rain chances will increase and winds will be a problem ahead and during the storm’s crossing. Look for details on these incoming changes once this storm gets closer.
