Overnight a few snow showers impacted areas across the northern
mountains and extreme northeast plains, elsewhere skies were
mostly clear around state. After record high temperature at the
Albuquerque Sunport yesterday, temperatures were cold this morning
with breezy to gusty winds behind a storm system. Extremes ranged
from 25 degrees at Gallup to 55 degrees at the Roswell Airport.

Dry conditions are forecast behind the Pacific cold front which
crossed New Mexico yesterday, will be followed by another backdoor
cold front across the eastern plain today. High temperatures today
will be near to slightly below normal in the southwest New Mexico
and the middle and lower Rio Grande Valley and well below normal
across the remainder of the state. Winds will be breezy to gusty
throughout the day especially over the mountain tops. Clear skies
and light winds will help temperatures plummet tonight behind the
cold front. The late first freeze of the season is anticipated at
the Albuquerque Sunport Sunday morning, which would be the 3rd
latest first freeze on record.
