Kristen’s Tuesday Afternoon Forecast

Another round of showers & storms

TUESDAY: Afternoon temperatures will be ~5-10 degrees cooler than Monday, leaving most of the state in the 60s and 70s (slightly warmer across far southern NM). Another round of showers and storms will develop into the afternoon hours. Northern and central NM can expect more scattered showers and storms with strong to severe thunderstorms possible near the TX/NM stateline. The biggest threats with storms developing over the Eastern Plains will be large hail, gusty winds and heavy rain / flash flooding. Weak thunderstorms elsewhere will still have the potential to contain small hail, gusty winds and brief, heavy downpours. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH remains in effect for parts of the Southeastern Plains through 6PM.

WEDNESDAY: A few scattered storms will linger over northern and eastern NM while the remainder of the state sees more sunshine. Our warming trend will kick off Wednesday afternoon with more seasonable temps expected across the state.

THURSDAY: Warm, sunny & breezy across the area with only a few isolated storms possible over the Eastern Plains.
