ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Temperatures will be very nice this week as a high-pressure ridge begins its reign – and a lack of rain – over our area.

Monday morning started a little cool but has warmed to the 50s and 60s in many places midday. Temperatures will warm up to the 60s and 70s at the heat of the day.

Those temperatures will do a slightly warmer reprise before a brief cooldown.

Strong winds with low humidity will return Wednesday, which could kick up the fire danger.
