ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The beat goes on for us with our continued cool, damp, and cloudy pattern. In addition, we’ll see widespread rain showers throughout the day. The steadier rain is south in Socorro County currently but is moving northwards towards the ABQ metro this morning. This could impact Balloon Fiesta in the next couple of hours. Otherwise, wind speeds are fairly light. Heavier rain will develop over central New Mexico through the afternoon as well. It’ll be the soggier of the two weekend days. High temps will rise only into the middle 60s again for Albuquerque, upper 50s for Santa Fe, and upper 60s for Roswell.


Forecast Continues Below


Sunday morning, the last day of the Balloon Fiesta, should feature some better weather for an otherwise iffy fiesta forecast period. We’ll see lighter scattered showers/weaker storms Sunday afternoon. The heaviest rain will fall across southern New Mexico near Roswell and Ruidoso. Highs temps will still be around 5-10° below average. Some drier air will begin replacing the high humidity associated with a cut-off low-pressure storm to our south. We’ll dry out from north to south early next week as our temperatures finally warm.
