NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – An active weather week is around the corner for New Mexico as some storm systems will bring high winds, rain, and snow to parts of the state by Friday. A back door cold front last night brought temperatures much colder in eastern New Mexico on Monday. Some of that cooler air has also made its way into the Rio Grande Valley. The weather will return to the eastern half of the state on Tuesday as the westerly winds pick up. Meanwhile, starting tonight in northwest New Mexico and southwest Colorado, rain and snow will begin to develop in the mountains from tonight through Tuesday afternoon. Another lap with light rain and mountain snow is possible on Wednesday as the wind in eastern New Mexico remains strong.
A stronger storm system hits New Mexico on Thursday, which will boost the wind on Thursday afternoon. When the storm system arrives, rain and snow will advance from west to east. A Pacific cold front will sweep across the state by Friday morning, leaving much cooler weather behind. By Friday morning, very strong winds with gusts over 60 miles per hour will develop in parts of eastern New Mexico and over 45 miles per hour in the western half of the state.
