Kristen’s Monday Morning Forecast

Video Forecast

We’ll kickoff the new work week with some big time weather action as a strong cold front brings winter weather to the state of NM. Monday will start chilly with spotty snow showers sweeping northwest to southeast across the northern half of the state. Minor accumulations are expected +6500ft — no significant accumulation expected in the valleys and lower elevations.

Strong to severe winds will also accompany the front. Expect sustained winds to range between 25-35mph / gusting 50-60mph. Strongest winds will be felt in central, southeast and mountain areas of NM. Wind alerts kick in 9AM Monday morning and continue through the evening hours.

Temps will drop behind the front leaving most of us 5°-15° below average for this time of year. Monday’s temps are only expected to reach the 30s and 40s over northern and central NM.

The good news? The impacts of this strong front will be limited to Monday as Tuesday will feature warming temps, more sunshine and drier conditions.

A more southwesterly flow packed with moisture will stream into the state midweek into the weekend. Expect more cloud cover, better chances for spotty showers and mild temps beginning on Wednesday.
