National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
603 AM MDT Mon Oct 16 2017

.DISCUSSION...Upper level high pressure centered over the area today
will break down through Tuesday. Temperatures will trend closer to
normal today then above normal all areas by Tuesday. Minimum humidity
values will range from near 10% across western NM to around 25% along
the Texas border. Ventilation will be poor to fair with lighter winds
over the state. Clouds will increase Wednesday ahead of a weak upper
level trough. The chance for rain showers will increase around the
high terrain Thursday as the system crosses overhead. Temperatures
will still remain above normal over the entire area and ventilation
rates will again be mainly poor to fair. Changes begin Friday as a
larger upper level storm system approaches from the west. Southwest
winds will become breezy across the entire area and ventilation will
finally improve. Much cooler and windy weather is possible Saturday
as the storm system develops into southeastern New Mexico and west
Texas. Some rain and mountain snow showers are possible for northern
New Mexico and the eastern plains.
