Erica's Monday Morning Forecast

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A quiet and dry start to the week, but a storm system will bring rain chances into western and central New Mexico Tuesday and Wednesday. A near-perfect morning for today’s Mass Ascension at Balloon Fiesta Park, with the exception of a slightly stronger northerly wind at times. A weak area of high pressure is building over New Mexico keeping quiet and dry and warmer weather around. A storm system approaches the state Tuesday, bringing rain chances into western New Mexico. Some of these showers will make their way into the Rio Grande Valley Wednesday morning which could impact that day’s Mass Ascension.

As this storm system exits, another one will move into New Mexico this weekend. It will bring some breezy to windy conditions by the end of the week and into the weekend, which once again could impact Balloon Fiesta.
