High cirrus will increase cloud cover today mainly over western and southern NM. Otherwise it will be a fairly pleasant day with highs several to 10 degrees above normal.
Partly to mostly cloudy skies over western and central NM Wednesday night, with perhaps a few isold showers over the SW mtns. Lows will range from the 20s-30s in the northern mtns, with 40s at lower elevations and low 50s in the southeast plains.
A low pressure system will cross NM Thursday and bring a big change from the recent stretch of dry and sunny weather. Showers and storms are expected to move east / northeast across mainly the southern half of the state Thursday afternoon and evening. Gusty and erratic outflow wind gusts are possible within the Rio Grande Valley. Higher terrain areas south of the I-40 corridor stand the chance to pick up 0.25 to 0.50" rainfall amounts.
Breezy west winds will develop Friday afternoon in the wake of the low pressure system from Thursday. The northeast plains will see the strongest winds with gusts up to 40 mph possible.
A storm system approaching NM from the west today will generate showers and storms for Thursday. Breezy winds are likely behind this system Friday. The next weather system will cross Saturday and bring cooler temperatures with more wind. Very pleasant weather is on tap for Sunday.
