Here’s a look at Saturday’s wind gusts across New Mexico.   Gusts as high as 66 in Las Vegas and Albuquerque hit 58 mph.

Unfortunately, the winds aren’t going to come down too much overnight and will be just as strong by Sunday afternoon.  Areas could once again have gusts from 55-65 mph with some areas in the Eastern Plains near 70 mph wind gusts.  And not only will you feel the wind on Sunday afternoon, but the well below average temperatures as well!

On the backside of this storm, much cooler air is moving in.   So while some areas are seeing rain right now, more will see snow after temps drop off behind the cold front and after sunset.   Winds look to continue for Monday.
