Deep moisture combined with a weather disturbance kept storms very active across southeastern New Mexico today. The main difference today versus the past few weeks was the fact that we had more severe storms that we’ve seen in past days. Areas like Roswell picked up golf ball sized hail from powerful storms. Here in the metro we popped up some clowns but nothing in the way of significant storms. Over the next few days look for spot storms as some moisture sneaks under high-pressure over the Southwest.
Into the weekend all eyes shift west. A powerful trough is going to move in from the Pacific. Right now model forecasts are all over the map as far as how far south this trough will dip but if it heads in our direction we could be looking at some scattered showers and maybe even a little high mountain snow.
