Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
730 PM MDT Wed May 24 2017

The influence of an upper level ridge of high pressure over
the desert southwest brought mostly sunny to occasionally
partly cloudy skies to the Land of Enchantment today along
with breezy to gusty winds. Afternoon high temperatures
today generally transitioned from the 60s to 70s over higher
terrain to the 80s to lower 90s over lower terrain.

The upper level ridge will move into the state tonight then
begin to flatten in response to an approaching upper level
trough of low pressure over the Pacific northwest. For the
remainder of today and tonight skies will be mostly clear.
Winds will generally diminish during the overnight hours
except over higher terrain in the west and north where gusts
between 35 to 40 mph are possible. Overnight low temperatures
will range generally from the 40s to lower 50s over the north
and over lower terrain in the west to southwest and over the
Estancia basin to the lower 50s to mid 60s over the San Juan
basin, along the middle to lower Rio Grande river valley and
over the east central to southeast plains.

Thursday will be mostly sunny to occasionally partly cloudy.
Windy conditions are in store for most areas by afternoon with
gusts up to the 40 to 45 mph range expected. Higher terrain over
