As a weak upper-level low-pressure system over southern California gradually widens out into a trough as it moves eastward into New Mexico, fair and warm weather is predicted to prevail.
Even with a windy but shallow backdoor front falling southward over the eastern plains today, near-record high temperatures are forecast in several regions today and, to a lesser degree, Saturday.
Throughout northern and central New Mexico, temperatures will be above average, and conditions will be dry, at least through the weekend.
Even with the entrance of a cold front in eastern New Mexico today and another in the extreme northeastern regions of the state on Sunday, several sites will come close to setting new daily high temperatures each day, according to forecasters.
In the following week, the weather pattern will finally begin to shift, with spells of breezy to windy conditions becoming more regular, as well as the advent of colder and more seasonable temperatures.
A pair of swiftly moving weather disturbances might potentially bring the possibility of light rain and snow showers to certain portions of the state late Monday through late Tuesday, as well as again near the end of the week and into the following week.
According to the National Weather Service, a weak backdoor cold front will bring in gusty northerly winds throughout the eastern plains this afternoon and into the early evening hours.
