Strong Wind Will Continue…May 18th, 2013 at 8:05 pm by chrisgilson under Weather
The strong, gusty winds will continue into the second half of your weekend. That’s because the upper-level low pressure system passing through the region will slowly move off to the east and north over the next few days. Behind this system another wave of energy will move through Northern New Mexico on Monday. This system will keep the wind going through at Monday night.
Again, most of the precip will stay off to the north and we’ll be left with dry thunderstorms that do nothing but pick up the wind. With the strong winds lasting through Monday, the high fire danger will also continue. So it’s important to be alert when your outside and to not do any burning yourself. The winds will relax by mid-week when a ridge builds over New Mexico allowing for the summer-like temps to return.
