What an unbelievable weather day across New Mexico. Here in the Albuquerque area we had 45 mile per hour winds late this afternoon carrying and sharply cooler air. It definitely feels like fall in the city with temperatures plunging down in the low 50s tonight.
The biggest story however was across southeastern New Mexico. areas of Eddy and Lea Counties picked up 5+ inches of rain thanks to a strong cold front in deep southerly moisture.
The storms will back off across the state for tomorrow. Southern New Mexico will have plenty of cloud cover and some showers but nothing like what we saw today. Here in the metro area fair amount of clouds will be had as well but we shouldn’t see much in the way of storms. Take a look at the image below it’s Doppler estimates of rainfall across the south today. The numbers are staggering.
