Arctic blast tonight through Friday, travel plans could be thwarted
National Weather Service advisories warn New Mexicans to take precautions against record cold temperatures and high winds that are predicted to move into the northeast part of our state tonight and continue through this Friday.
Albuquerque National Weather Service says, “Very cold temperatures and strong to very strong north winds will produce dangerously cold wind chill temperatures from Thursday morning through Thursday night. Hypothermia and frostbite will be possible in mere minutes in northeastern New Mexico. Minimize time outdoors and dress in warm layers!”
If you plan to travel north over the holidays, be aware that temperatures will be in the extreme cold zone. Montana is set to be as cold as negative 38 degrees. Colorado, which is closer to us, will get as low as negative six tomorrow.
It will be sunny, with a high near 49 and a low around 25. West wind 5 to 10 mph.
Stay warm this week!
