Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
532 PM MST Fri Dec 9 2016
Skies were partly sunny today as high clouds scurried across New
Mexico. Highs ranged in the 40s and 50s with light to moderate
breezes. High clouds will continue across the skies tonight with
possible low status cloud and fog development across the east
central and southeast plains. Otherwise, overnight lows will be in
the teens north and west to 20s and 30s elsewhere.
Low clouds and fog in the east will eventually burn off Saturday
as temps rebound to above normal readings followed by an increase
in winds, especially across the Sangre de Cristos. Winds will
increase further on Sunday as an upper level wave crosses the
northern half of the state. Westerly winds will become strong to
damaging with possible 60 mph gusts Sunday afternoon. The highest
gusts will occur along and east of the central mountain chain.
Above normal temps will persist into early next week before a back
door front invades the east plains midweek.
