Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
849 PM MDT Fri Mar 24 2017

The Pacific storm system that wreaked havoc over the state
yesterday, last night and early today has finally exited to
the east and is now located over the south central plains. We
were still seeing some wrap around cloudiness this afternoon
on the back side of the storm system, over the north central
mountains and eastern plains. Strong gusty winds were also still
occurring over the northeast highlands and eastern plains today
with average gusts up to the 40 to 60 mph range. Afternoon high
temperatures today ranged from the 30s to lower 50s over higher
terrain to the mid 50s to lower 70s over lower terrain.

High pressure continues to build into the area in the wake of the
front. For tonight skies will become mostly clear to clear over
most of the state with only occasionally partly cloudy skies over
the far northeast plains. Winds will continue to diminish this
evening becoming light to variable over most of the state tonight,
except over the northeast highlands and northeast to eastern plains
where winds will be occasionally breezy. Overnight low temperatures
will generally range from the upper teens to upper 20s over and
near the northern mountains and over the Raton and Estancia basins
and over lower terrain over the west to southwest. Over the San
Juan basin and over higher terrain over the west to southwest and
over south central areas and the eastern plains, overnight lows
will range from the 30s to lower 40s.
