Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
900 AM MDT Wed May 24 2017

Overnight low temperatures were cool across the Land of
Enchantment. Temperatures were in the upper 20s to mid 30s over
higher elevations and in the 40s to low 50s elsewhere. Cloudy
skies cleared out around midnight and are mostly clear state wide
this morning as high pressure ridges in.

Today begins a warm and drying trend. Daytime high temperatures
will climb 5 to 8 degrees above normal. Thursday expect highs to
reach 6 to 12 degrees above normal, especially across the eastern
plains. Roswell will likely hit 100 degrees, with gusty winds.
This will increase fire weather danger dramatically until
Saturday, when a west coast trough of low pressure passes through
the region. Low level moisture will increase, bringing showers and
thunderstorms, beginning across the northwest. As a back door
cold front moves south across the eastern plains later Saturday,
showers and thunderstorms in the eastern plains will expand along
and west of the central mountain chain.
