After a great Thanksgiving weatherwise, more sunshine and mild temperatures will be on the way for the next few days. Dry, westerly flow has taken control of our weather and it’ll continue for much of the holiday weekend. Temperatures will continue to climb above average over the next few days, but it will still be chilly overnight. Some clouds may try and develop over the state for Friday and the weekend. So outside of some clouds, it’ll be nice for anything you have planned for the rest of the holiday weekend. But, by next week we’ll watch a possible storm system head our way. This storm could bring a HUGE drop in temps and more snow for the mountains. Stay tuned! In the meantime, enjoy the rest of the holiday!
Mostly sunny skies will be the rule across the state on Thursday. Highs will remain cool but warmer than they were today. Here in the metro area the high will top out just shy of 50°. Northern mountain areas will remain in the low 40′s while southern areas will max out in the low 50′s.
By Friday winds will ramp up a little bit otherwise conditions should remain dry. Saturday looks a little more intriguing. I still don’t think we will see many showers but there will be more clouds. Highs will warm into the low to mid 50′s. Our next storm still looks like it could come in late next week. Happy Thanksgiving!
The northerly flow currently over the state will shift to more of a westerly flow through Thursday. This will result in mostly sunny skies and warming temps. Highs will top out in the high 40′s and low 50′s both Wednesday and Thursday. There are no storms on the way until next week.
A northerly flow will build in over the area on Tuesday. This will lead to mostly sunny skies and temps in the low 40′s. There will be a warming trend over the area through Thanksgiving and into the holiday weekend. Highs on Wednesday will be in the high 40′s and finally be Thanksgiving day we will warm back into the low 50′s. The only weather risk is some early morning freezing fog.
Our next series of storms should pass north of the state over the weekend. There is not much precip expected with either of the two systems.
We’ve been talking about this storm for a week and it is finally knocking on our door step tonight as snow increases in coverage. There is a ton of moisture in place over New Mexico and the trigger, the core of the storm, is moving in from the west. This will increase our chance for heavy snow late tonight into early Sunday. Expect dangerous travel conditions across NM beginning tonight and lasting likely into Monday morning in some areas.
This storm will dump a foot or more in Southern Colorado and the Northern Mountains. In Albuquerque, we could pick up 2-6″. But, a lot of this snowfall forecast for the metro will depend on the canyon winds. If the winds come down like they are expected to do early Sunday, 4-6″ across the city will be a pretty good bet. BUT, if the winds stay strong into Sunday morning/afternoon, we’re looking at 1-3″ with higher amounts possible on the westside.
Of course, we’ll have complete coverage beginning Saturday night at 10 and Sunday. Stay with KRQE News 13 for more weather updates!
