Kristen’s Monday Morning Forecast

Weather Video Forecast

MONDAY: The cold, Arctic air that was brought in by Sunday’s cold front continues to settle over eastern New Mexico. Morning temperatures in the Plains are flat-out brutal with readings in the single digits, teens and 20s. In addition to the cold, freezing fog and drizzle is likely to develop. It’ll be a whole different ball game further west as high temps climb back into the 40s, 50s and 60s under a mostly to partly sunny sky. Breezy conditions are likely late day with winds in the ABQ-metro between 10-20mph.|

WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect until noon Monday for the San Juan Mountains and Sangre de Cristo Mountains (+9000ft) for an additional 3″ – 7″ of snowfall.

TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY: After a cold start to the week, afternoon highs will finally rebound out east, joining the rest of the state in a midweek warming trend. Widespread 50s, 60s and 70s are expected with a good amount of sunshine statewide.

NOTE: A quick-hitting disturbance will cross northwest New Mexico Wednesday into Thursday. It’s likely that southern Colorado and northwest New Mexico will see a round of showers out of this storm. The majority of us further south and east will see an increase in cloud cover but the warm-up will continue.

LATE WEEK: Our next *big weather maker will arrive Friday into Saturday. Expect more widespread rain and snow showers to accompany this system — plus, WIND! Breezy to windy conditions will take over Thursday through Saturday in Albuquerque. Afternoon highs will drop behind the cold front leaving us with a cooler start to our weekend.
