Kristen’s Wednesday Morning Forecast

Weather Video Forecast

Moisture streaming in from the west will spread cloud cover over New Mexico through the day Wednesday. Ahead of our next storm, strong winds combining with dry conditions will raise fire danger over east-central and northeast NM. A RED FLAG WARNING is in effect from 10AM-7PM Wednesday for parts of northeast NM. Winds are expected to strengthen overnight with gusts up to 50-60mph in the Sangre De Crisot Mtns east into the Plains beginning overnight into Thursday morning.

On the flip side of the state (Four Courners / Northern Mountains), rain and high mountain snow showers will begin to break out late Wednesday. Expect these showers to spread further east and south overnight into Thursday.

Thursday will be another active weather day in New Mexico with breezy to windy conditions continuing into the day. Rain and high mountain snow (+8000ft) showers will continue to favor northern and western NM. Accumulating snowfall could reach 2′ for the higher elevations of the San Juan Mountains by the time this storm clears Friday.

Temperatures will not move much over the next 3-4 days as highs stay near to above seasonal averages. Expect high temps to jump into the mid- to upper 50s in the Rio Grande Valley Thursday and Friday afternoon.
