Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
643 PM MDT Tue Sep 19 2017

Dry, warm, and breezy to windy conditions were observed across
most of northern and central New Mexico today. The morning had a
cool to mild start with low temperatures generally ranging from
the 30s to 50s. One of the colder locales this morning was found
in the Valles Caldera of the Jemez mountains where the mercury
fell to a chilly 24 degrees. Roswell was much milder with a low
temperature of 62 degrees.

A few high cirrus clouds were periodically observed throughout the
daytime today. As the sun began warming the ground surface, the
lower parts of the atmosphere began to mix, and by mid to late
afternoon some stronger winds aloft mixed down to the surface.
Wind gusts of 35 to 45 mph were observed at several locations,
including a 43 mph gust at Taos and Gallup, 47 mph at Tucumcari,
and 52 mph at Clines Corners. High temperatures reached or
exceeded seasonal averages for mid September, hitting 68 degrees
at Angel Fire, 77 degrees at Taos, 83 degrees at Farmington and
Santa Fe, 88 at Albuquerque, and 98 at Roswell.

Winds will not be as strong on Wednesday while dry conditions
prevail with near to slightly above normal temperatures. Skies
will remain mostly clear on Wednesday. A few more clouds will
develop on Thursday with stronger winds also returning.
Precipitation chances are then expected to increase Friday and
more-so into the weekend as a deep low pressure system takes shape
over the western United States.
