It’s time for our weekly cool down! Hardly something those of us across New Mexico are getting excited about. Thankfully the cool down this week will not be quite as strong!
A cold front will sweep across the state through Monday night and Tuesday. This will cool temps the most across the east, where temps will drop up to 30°. However, the rest of the state’s temperature drop will not be quite as jolting. Albuquerque will drop by around 10° with highs near 70° for Tuesday.
The other story with this front will be the wind. Again, the east will see the highest winds overnight through Tuesday. The southeast will see gusts near 40 mph, leading to quite a bit of blowing dust.
Shower activity will not be impressive with this front, but the northeast and northern mountains will see a few showers Monday night through Tuesday. Some of the higher peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains could pick up an inch or two of snow.
Things settle down on Wednesday, with temps starting to rebound. Thursday will be much warmer, despite a weak storm crossing the state. That could throw a few showers into the mix during the day Thursday. That storm clears Friday, leading to a very warm and sunny weekend!

Temperatures continue to climb into the upcoming weekend. After being well below average earlier this week, we’ll see afternoon highs 5° – 10° above average across the state.
The northeast and Northern Mountains have the best shot of seeing a couple of spot showers on Saturday as a week front edges into the state. However, the rest of the state will stay dry with partly to mostly sunny skies.
On Sunday, most of the state stays dry, but the winds start to kick up. This will increase the fire danger and decrease visibility as blowing dust will be an issue. A westerly flow will allow temps in the east to soar, with the southeast seeing highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Early next week, another storm will dive toward the state. This one will only bring a few showers to the northern part of the state, but temps will cool down again for the middle of the workweek. However, temps will rebound again into next weekend!

After seeing beneficial rainfall and snow fall during the first part of the week, the end of the week will feature drier and warmer conditions.
Spot showers will remain possible across the northern part of the state Friday, especially over the Northern Mountains. However, most will stay dry with only passing clouds.
By the weekend, skies will start to clear. Expect more sunshine and even warmer temperatures. Afternoon highs will warm to 5° – 10° above average for this time of year. Highs will reach the 60s across the north, the 70s in the metro, and the 80s in the southeast!
The next storm will approach the state toward the middle of next week. The best chance for showers will be across the north, though central locations could pick up a spot shower. Temperatures will continue to stay on the warm side throughout much of next week!
