Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
630 AM MST Fri Nov 17 2017

Winds have already begun to pick up this morning as evidenced by a
55mph wind gust at Raton at 3am. High winds are expected to
continue over the higher elevations of the Sangre de Cristo
Mountains today, expanding to the northeast plains by this
afternoon. Winds of 35-45 mph with gusts up to 60 mph are
expected, making travel difficult along north-south oriented
roads. Breezy to windy conditions are also expected over much of
the rest of NM today with 25-35 mph winds this afternoon.

Downsloping winds will allow for record high temperatures today
for eastern NM. This morning`s lows in the 40s and 50s for much
of eastern NM will also likely be record high lows as well. Much
colder temperatures are on the way once the Pacific cold front
passes by later tonight into Saturday. Freezing temperatures are
expected at the ABQ Sunport for the first time this season Sunday
morning. Despite it feeling colder, actual low temperatures will
be near to just below normal for mid to late November.
