National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
606 AM MST Tue Nov 21 2017

.DISCUSSION...
A backdoor cold front will move across the eastern plains today,
returning daytime temperatures to near normal and increasing low-
level moisture. Winds will shift to the north and east behind the
front with gusts to near 30 mph in the eastern plains this
afternoon. Breezy conditions in the eastern plains today will
produce good to excellent ventilation, while ventilation across the
rest of the region will be poor to fair. Large high pressure to the
west will expand over NM Wednesday and Thursday with light winds,
poor ventilation and daytime temperatures well above normal. Highs
Thursday may approach records.  Breezy conditions are expected
Friday across the east central plains. Ventilation in the east
central plains will improve to fair, but will be poor across the
rest of the region. High temperatures Friday will climb to near
record values across the eastern plains. Another backdoor cold front
will cross the eastern plains Saturday, but conditions across the
area Saturday and Sunday will be warmer than normal and continued
dry.
