Northern N.M. Could See Some Unsettled Weather
High pressure over New Mexico will keep the state's weather dry until at least Friday night or Saturday, the National Weather Service said.
A cold front will move into the northeast late Friday, causing lower temperatures in the far northeast Saturday.
Moisture will begin streaming in from the west, and a few rain and mountain snow showers might develop over the north late Friday night and Saturday.
Chances of precipitation will increase through the weekend, mostly over the northwest and the north-central high country.
A stronger storm system might affect New Mexico next Tuesday and Wednesday.
A cold front plunged into the eastern plains overnight Wednesday, ushering in low clouds and patchy fog across the northeastern, east-central and southeastern plains.
Low temperatures before daybreak today ranged from 18 degrees at Taos to 40 degrees at Truth or Consequences.
High temperatures Wednesday ranged from 50 degrees at Red River to 79 degrees at Carlsbad.
