Temps to plummet as front pushes through this weekend

-A A +A

A STRONG COLD FRONT TO BRING AN ABRUPT CHANGE IN THE WEATHER THIS WEEKEND ACROSS NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO...

A STRONG EARLY SPRING COLD FRONT WILL PUSH THROUGH ON SATURDAY... BRINGING MUCH COLDER AIR AND WINDY CONDITIONS TO THE AREA. THIS WILL BE A RATHER ABRUPT CHANGE GIVEN TEMPERATURES OVER THE PAST TEN DAYS HAVE GENERALLY BEEN ABOVE TO WELL ABOVE NORMAL.

BELOW TO WELL BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE FORECAST BEHIND THE FRONT ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. LOW TEMPERATURES ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY NIGHTS WILL BE BELOW FREEZING MOST AREAS... EVEN DOWN INTO THE LOWER SINGLE DIGITS AT A FEW NORTHERN MOUNTAIN LOCATIONS. AT LOWER ELEVATION LOCATIONS... SUCH AS THE ALBUQUERQUE METRO AREA... LOW TEMPERATURES WILL DIP TO READINGS NOT OBSERVED SINCE LATE FEBRUARY. AFTER A COUPLE DAYS OF COLD CONDITIONS... A WARMING TREND WILL BEGIN ON MONDAY OF NEXT WEEK.

WINDY TO VERY WINDY CONDITIONS ARE EXPECTED SATURDAY WITH THE STRONGEST WINDS ACROSS THE EASTERN HIGHLANDS AND ADJACENT PLAINS. IN ADDITION TO WINDY AND COLD CONDITIONS... SNOW IS FORECAST ACROSS THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS... NORTHEAST HIGHLANDS AND ADJACENT PLAINS. ANY SIGNIFICANT ACCUMULATIONS SHOULD BE CONFINED TO THE HIGHER TERRAIN NEAR THE COLORADO BORDER.
