Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
704 PM MDT Fri Oct 20 2017

Skies over the Land of Enchantment were mostly sunny to partly
cloudy today with breezy to windy conditions. A few brief rain
showers occurred over and near the southern Jemez and southern
Sangre de Cristo mountains this afternoon. Southwest winds picked
up today ahead of an approaching Pacific cold front. Gusts up to
the 40 to 45 mph range were reported over the northern mountains,
western highlands and over the northeast to eastern highlands and
northeast plains. High temperatures this afternoon generally ranged
from the 50s to mid 60s over higher terrain and over the Upper Rio
Grande river valley to the upper 60s to lower 80s elsewhere.

The cold front will push into northwest parts of the state late this
evening, then quickly move to the southeast, through central parts
of the state by sunrise Saturday, then into the eastern plains
during the mid to late morning hours. This system will bring a
chance of a few rain and snow showers in the northern mountains
near the Colorado border tonight and on Saturday. Low temperatures
tonight will generally range from the upper 20s to lower 40s over
higher terrain, over areas west of the Continental divide and
over the Estancia basin to the mid 40s to mid 50s elsewhere. High
temperatures Saturday will be generally 10 to 15 degrees cooler
across the northwest half of the state and 5 to 10 degrees cooler
elsewhere.
