Return of Windy Weather….May 16th, 2013 at 1:51 pm by chrisgilson under Weather
We’re watching a storm system that will move just to our north over the next few days. There’s still a possibility this low pressure system could move further south. This would give us a little more moisture with a better chance for some showers over the north and less wind. But, if it stays further north the wind will really pick up over the weekend creating a very high fire danger for New Mexico with a chance for spot storms over the Northwest and Northern Mountains. The Eastern portion of New Mexico is already under a Fire Weather Watch for Saturday because of the increasing wind speeds.
Temperatures will stay on the warm side in the Metro, but upper 90s and triple digit heat will continue in the Southeast for places like Carlsbad. Temperatures do come down a bit over the weekend.
