Kristen’s Wednesday Morning Forecast

Video Forecast

WEDNESDAY: An active day of weather with widespread showers, thunderstorms and high mountain snow developing across the state. The instigator? A strengthening storm system kicking out of Arizona and crossing New Mexico through the day. Mountain snow will favor the Sangre de Cristo Mountains with 4″ – 8″ possible above 9500ft (Winter Weather Advisory in effect 6AM to 12AM Thursday). High winds will also be a contender in the forecast with winds 25-35mph / gusting to 50 in the Northwest Plateau (Wind Advisory in effect 3PM to 8PM). Afternoon highs will be significantly cooler than what was felt earlier in the week as most of us drop below seasonal averages — Albuquerque: 60°

THURSDAY: The mentioned storm system will continue to trek east, clearing the state and giving way to drier/warmer conditions on Thursday. Afternoon highs will rebound back into the low 70s in the Albuquerque-metro, near to just above seasonal average for mid-April.

FRIDAY: We’ll close out the work week with pleasant weather — mostly sunny skies, dry conditions and warmer than average temps (60s, 70s and 80s). For those partaking in Good Friday pilgrimages, you’ll want to grab a light jacket to start… but you’ll be just fine in short sleeves late morning through early evening (don’t forget the sunscreen!)
