The backdoor front prevented warmer highs east of the mountains Friday. Many areas north of I-40 didn’t break 60 degrees with some gusts 25-30 mph as well. However, high pressure is building across the southwest. We’ll begin a warming trend on Saturday and then add a few degrees each day through Tuesday. The warmest temperatures will be Monday and Tuesday especially east of the central mountains. That part of New Mexico will see downsloping winds as temperatures soar to near 80 on both days.

The state will have increasing clouds on Tuesday ahead of another dry backdoor front. This means wind speeds will once again increase eventually bringing some colder air later Wednesday. We’ll return to normal November temperatures late next week, while the east will even be below average for a few days. It looks like however, we stay dry for the next 10 days. The state could see some hope for some showers into Thanksgiving week.
