Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
640 PM MST Thu Feb 23 2017

Skies were mostly cloudy across northern New Mexico this morning
with a few scattered rain and snow showers. By this afternoon
skies were mostly sunny across the entire forecast area. Strong
gusty winds were the norm over most areas today. Lower elevations
west of the central mountain chain and eastern plains saw wind
gusts between 35 to 55 mph. Afternoon high temperatures today
ranged from the 40s to mid 50s over higher elevations to the upper
60s to 70s in lower elevations. Low temperatures tonight will
drop into the low teens to mid 20s over the north central
mountains and upper Rio Grande valley to the upper 20s to low 30s
over south central areas and eastern plains.

Low humidity and winds with gusts of 45-50 mph will ramp up again
tomorrow across the east central plains, increasing fire weather
concerns. Daytime high temperatures will be cooler tomorrow in the
wake of a dry cold front. Expect high temperatures to range in
the low 30s to mid 40s over higher elevations and in the 40s to
upper 50s in lower elevations and eastern plains. By Sunday,
another upper level low will skirt north of the state, bringing
areas of rain and mountain snow to north central and northwestern
New Mexico.
