Kristen’s Thursday Afternoon Forecast

Weather Video Forecast

THURSDAY: Lingering snow showers in the Northern Mountains will be the last of the impacts out of this week’s ‘Bomb Cyclone’. Another 4″ – 8″ of snow is possible within the southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains (more favorable +9500ft) and 3″ – 6″ in the Jemez Mountains. Showers will also be possible along the eastern slopes of the northern and central mountains as a backdoor cold front banks up against the high terrain. The majority of us further south can expect a mix of sun and clouds, lighter winds and cooler temps. Afternoon highs will likely only make it to the 30s, 40s and 50s — below average for this time of year.

FRIDAY: Isolated snow showers will try to hold on over the Northern Mountains, however, coverage and intensity will be limited. Most of NM can expect a mostly sunny finish to the work week with afternoon highs climbing a few degrees over Thursday’s temps (but still falling short of normal).

SATURDAY: A small disturbance in the upper flow along with a bit of moisture streaming in will allow a few spotty showers to develop over southern NM Saturday afternoon. Coverage and intensity will be limited — severe storms not likely. Those further north can expect a mostly to partly sunny sky and warmer temps. (Note: our weekend warming trend is expected to continue through middle of next week)

SUNDAY: A great looking St. Patrick’s Day with plenty of sunshine, near-average temps & no significant rain or snow chances.
