More Wind Means More Fire DangerApril 1st, 2014 at 12:28 pm by John Smith under Weather
Today will feature more wind and warmer temperatures. Highs will run from near average across the west to as much as 15° above average across the east. With a southwest flow in place ahead of our next storm, winds will be rather strong, especially east of the Northern Mountains. A High Wind Warning is in place across the northeast for gusts up to 60 mph. Much of the state is also under a Red Flag Warning due to the warm, dry, and windy conditions.
Our next storm drops into the Four Corners late Wednesday into Thursday. This will allow for a few showers across the northwest and Northern Mountains. The rest of the state will continue to deal with wind. This storm will also cool temperatures across the state to below average. Thursday will be the coolest day of the week with highs in Albuquerque dropping to the 50s.
Temperatures will rebound into the weekend, but another storm will keep the weather unsettled. Expect better chances of scattered showers across more of the state this weekend.
