John’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast


Some lingering moisture today will allow a few more storms to develop. Storms today will be capable of producing dry lightning, especially across western New Mexico. Some storms along the far eastern edge of the state could be severe. Many of the storms will be capable of producing gusty winds. Also expect high winds across the northwest, though not quite as bad as yesterday.

Winds come down Thursday as drier air works into the state. Critical fire weather conditions will be the story as the week closes. Friday, a surge of moisture from the south could produce decent shower activity, especially across the south and east. A few spot storms will continue across the east over the weekend before another surge of moisture from a back door cold front juices the atmosphere again for Monday. Some of that moisture will work into central sections Tuesday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
