Kristen’s Friday Morning Forecast

Video Forecast

Lack of moisture, unseasonably hot temperatures and increasing winds will create the “perfect storm” for an awful day of fire danger Friday. Red Flag Warnings have been issued for most of northern and central NM beginning 11 a.m through 8 p.m. due to elevated to critical fire danger.

Afternoon temperatures will soar well into the 80s and 90s in most locations while those near the eastern state line face another day of triple-digit heat. (Roswell: 106° / Carlsbad: 108°)

Saturday will be a transition day for us as a cold front begins to make its way into the east. Expect cooler temperatures Saturday afternoon across northeast and east-central NM… while the rest of us can expect a dip in temps on Sunday.

Gulf moisture streaming in from the south and a disturbance rolling in from the northwest will help trigger scattered storms over the state Sunday afternoon. There is potential for some storms to be severe — be sure to stay with KRQE for the latest updates.
