Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
700 PM MST Wed Feb 22 2017

New Mexico skies were mostly cloudy today as high clouds streamed
across the region ahead of an approaching Pacific low. Winds were
gusty in the afternoon with gusts of 20-25 mph across the central
Rio Grande Valley. High temperatures today ranged from the upper
50s to 60s across the north and west, to upper 70s to low 80s in
the south and east. Low temperatures tonight will be mild with
upper 20s to mid 30s across the north and west, and upper 30s to
40s in the south and east.

Winds will increase across much of the state again tomorrow with
gusts of between 40 to 50 mph possible due to a steep west to east
surface gradient. The strongest winds will occur across the
central mountain chain and eastern plains where damaging gusts up
to the 40 to 55 mph range will be common. High temperatures will
be somewhat cooler tomorrow, ranging from the upper 30s to 40s
over higher terrain to the mid 50s to mid 60s over lower terrain,
with some upper 70s in the southeast. It will be windy into the
weekend and slightly warmer by Saturday.
