Kristen’s Friday Morning Forecast

Video Forecast

FRIDAY: Widespread rain and mountain snow will continue through the day, making for a wet, cool and gloomy finish to the work week. Keep the umbrella on standby… and don’t forget the coat either! Morning temperautres in the 40s will only make it to the low to mid-50s in the ABQ-metro — widespread 40s, 50s and low 60s expected statewide. You’ll notice the strong east winds coming out of the canyon to start the day… but winds are expected to lighten up some with speeds generally ranging 10-20mph late day. An additional 6″ – 12″ of snow is expected for those +9000ft — and keep in mind, this is *on top of* the +12″ some areas picked up Thursday!

SATURDAY: More scattered storms and showers are expected into the weekend with snow expected for those above 9000ft. Afternoon temperatures will be about 10° warmer than Friday’s readings allowing Albuquerque to get back to the 60s.

SUNDAY: The bigger “parent” storm will begin to close in on the state from the west… and as it treks closer, it will continue to pull up abundant moisture. This will fuel another round of widespread showers, isolated thunderstorms and mountain snow. Expect afternoon highs to remain below average in the 50s, 60s and 70s.

NEXT WEEK: The mentioned storm will *FINALLY cross NM, keeping the rain and storm chances alive in New Mexico Monday and Tuesday. A much-anticipated dry out and warm up will get underway by Wednesday/Thursday.
