Kristen’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

Video Forecast

WEDNESDAY: We’ll have enough sunshine and a good west/southwest flow overhead to help warm temps to near average across NM — widespread 60s, 70s and 80s expected. Lingering moisture will allow a few spotty showers to develop over southern CO and areas near the northern stateline — however, coverage and intensity will be limited (non-severe). Winds will be breezy at times this afternoon with speeds reaching 15mph — not a major wind day.

THURSDAY: An incoming cold front will move northeast to southwest across eastern NM on Thursday. This front wil cool temperatures a few degrees from Wednesday’s readings for those east of the Central Mountains. Despite the cool down, temps will still top out in the 60s, 70s and 80s in most locales. Spotty showers will be possible within the higher terrain and northern NM, however, most of us will still stay dry — especially further south and west.

FRIDAY: General flow over the state will turn more southeasterly, allowing Gulf moisture to be pulled into eastern NM. This moisture will help fuel scattered showers and thunderstorms over eastern NM Friday afternoon… with the potential for some storms to turn strong to severe. Afternoon temps will rebound behind Thursday’s front with most of the state topping out above seasonal averages.
