Highs across the Inland Northwest are expected to be in the 50s and low-60s by Thanksgiving. Monday morning starts off on a cooler note in the mid 30s with a sunny afternoon in the lower 60s. Afternoon temperatures will rebound nicely with most of us a few degrees warmer than Thursday - Albuquerque forecast high: 70°. Saturday will be the warmer of the two days, with highs in the low 70s.

Sunday looks good with mostly sunny skies and temps ranging from 40 in the morning to 58 in the afternoon.

It will be windy with a few snow showers in the northern mountains on Black Friday. Breezy. Highs low to mid 60s.

For tonight expect clear skies and light winds, where temperatures fall below the freezing mark.

Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, the high will be near 58, with sunny skies and a west northwest wind of 3 to 7 miles per hour, the weather service said. Skies will remain mostly sunny with no chance for rain. That temperature is near where we should be for this time of year. Friday evening will be mostly clear, with a low of 36.

But again, this warming trend is short-lived as another cold front rolls in Sunday morning. Monday night will cool to the upper 40s with clear skies.

Wet and mild weather continues Wednesday. There is no rain associated with this front, so another dry day is in store.
