Kristen’s Wednesday Morning Forecast

Weather Video Forecast

WEDNESDAY: As Tuesday’s storm continues to exit the state, expect more sunshine, drier conditions and slightly warmer temps to take its place. Afternoon highs will still fall 10°-20° short of normal for this time of year… but Wednesday’s forecast high of 41° in ABQ will feel better than the 30s we had the day before. A few flurries will linger over the high terrain of northern NM but no significant accumulation is expected. The exception to the dry out will be southern CO where a few showers will begin developing over the San Juans ahead of our next storm.

THURSDAY: Showers will begin to fill in over southern CO and northwest NM through the day Thursday. These showers will continue crossing the western stateline late Thursday into Friday. While we continue to wait for this storm, the majority of us within central and eastern NM can expect an increase in cloud cover and a bump in afternoon highs (mostly 40s, 50s and 60s).

FRIDAY: Scattered to widespread snow showers will spread out over the state overnight Thursday into Friday. Expect an active day of weather to finish the week — particularly for northern and western NM where significant snow accumulation is expected.

Potential snow totals Thursday into Friday:
— Northwest  & west-central NM: 10″ – 20″ above 7500′ / 4″ – 10″ below 7500ft
— Southern CO: 4″ – 12″ / 12″ – 24″ higher elevations of San Juans

WEEKEND: Eastern NM will get hit with strong winds as the winter storm clears the state. Mostly to partly sunny conditions and below average temps will be the trend both Saturday and Sunday across NM. (More sunshine and quieter conditions can be expected into early next week.)
