Clouds increase today, light showers for Thanksgiving

Saturday will still be mostly cloudy, but most of the time will be dry. A moist southeast flow will keep us cloudy as the weak surface low and trough to our south move northeast.

Friday will be sunny and warmer after a cold start. Afternoon highs should run in the mid to upper 70s with early morning temperatures in the upper 50s.

SUNDAY: The mentioned storm will cross over the northwestern NM... bringing in the opportunity for high country snow and lower elevation mix. The weather should be dry and cool for the end of the holiday weekend. Highs will be in the upper 70's to around 80 degrees.

Minus a few showers Sunday morning we will see a break from the wet weather for the second half of the weekend.

Black Friday shoppers can expect cloudy skies, chilly temperatures and a chance of rain showers in the evening. High pressure will bring mostly sunny skies and seasonably cool temperatures. Saturday's highs will be in the upper-30s. Scattered showers (50%). Highs in the low 60s.

The next cold front due to arrive will be mid week next week and it is not expected to be that strong. Rain chances increase as we head closer to the morning hours on Thanksgiving. It's a bit early to have reliable rain totals forecasts, but at least the early model runs are casting a line of hope.
