NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Warmer weather returned to all of New Mexico Thursday. The warming trend will continue into the weekend with some of the warmest weather we’ve seen in two months.

Finally, warmer weather returned to all of eastern New Mexico this afternoon, with highs reaching up to 60° in the southeastern part of the state. Elsewhere, high temperatures climbed to right around average for the beginning of February. Clouds cleared out from the entire state today too and clear skies will continue overnight, allowing for temperatures to cool off very quickly once the sun sets.
