Seasonably cool temps are forecast for the local area today into Saturday with highs mostly in the mid 50's to near 60 today, and 60 - 65 on Thursday. A weak cold front will arrive Thursday night, which will keep our daytime highs in the low 50's on Friday, and the upper 50's to low 60's on Saturday. Sunday will be warmer with highs in the upper 60's to low 70's.
A trough of low pressure will swing across northern New Mexico on Monday, which will likely kick up to southwesterly winds across southeastern New Mexico. A stronger and colder closed upper-level low is forecast to move across southern Colorado and northern New Mexico by next Wednesday. A 200 mph jet stream wind speed maximum is forecast to accompany this storm so it appears we are due for another high wind and blowing dust event by the middle of next week.
