Kristen’s Monday Morning Forecast

Video Forecast

MONDAY: A cold front in the Eastern Plains combining with a storm system moving in from the West Coast will give us active weather to start the new work week. Scattered showers will break out over southern Colorado and the Four Corners area by Monday afternoon, pushing into central locales by Monday evening. A few storms firing in eastern New Mexico may be strong enough to reach severe criteria — top threats: large hail and damaging winds. It’s also possible that showers will drop snow in the higher elevations of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountains, primarily above 9500ft. Afternoon temperatures will be a bit cooler than what was felt over the weekend — expect highs to top out in the 60s, 70s and 80s for most of New Mexico (far Southeast Plains likely to top out in the low 90s).

TUESDAY: Showers will linger over far northern New Mexico while the rest of us dry out. Dry westerly flow setting up over the state will give way to mostly sunny conditions. Afternoon temps will be a touch cooler than Monday with ABQ in the low 70s (which is actually near average for this time of year).

WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny skies and warmer temps will stretch over the state. Not a whole lot to talk about weather-wise midweek.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY: Another backdoor cold front will make its way into eastern New Mexico, helping to bring back a chance at storms and showers late Thursday into Friday. Afternoon temps will continue to warm with highs in the upper 70s in ABQ by late Friday.
