Kristen’s Wednesday Morning Forecast

Weather Video Forecast

WEDNESDAY: Be sure to grab the umbrella before leaving the house as scattered showers and storms are expected to return to northern, central and western NM Wednesday afternoon and evening. Isolated thunderstorms may have enough strength to turn severe in far northeast NM — threats: hail and strong wind. Temperautres will drop to the 60s in the ABQ-metro, leaving us more than 5° cooler than average for this time in May… and that cool down will stretch statewide with 50s, 60s and 70s in most locales. An incoming cold front will begin to make its way into the northeast late day… and as it does, spread a rain/snow mix into northern and northeast NM overnight into Thursday.

THURSDAY: Snow showers will continue over the Northern Mountains while spotty rain showers and isolated storms will be possible elsewhere. Afternoon highs will continue to drop with fewer 80s and more 50s and 60s by Thursday afternoon. The mentioned cold front will crank up the east canyon winds in the ABQ-metro — prepare for windy conditions (50-55mph) overnight Thursday into Friday morning.

FRIDAY: Scattered to widespread showers will develop over the state — shaping up to be a cool, wet and soggy finish to the work week.
