Tomorrow, high pressure will begin to build to the south. This will usher in a lot more sunshine by Wednesday afternoon, but breezy winds will stick around east. Below average temperatures are expected for most of the state mid-week. The winds will begin to calm down by Thursday and temperatures will return to seasonable, warming even more into Friday.

Winds will begin to pick up Friday afternoon as a fast moving jet stream pushes over the state. Breezy to windy conditions are expected, but this will allow temperatures to warm a few more degrees, especially east. A weak disturbance will barely clip the northernmost portion of the state late Friday, bringing the chance for more northern mountain snow. For the rest of New Mexico, Friday’s storm will be mainly a wind maker.
