Storms today were over parts of southern New Mexico where they produced some heavy downpours and some of the thunderstorms were severe. These storms will be ending overnight tonight and most areas will enjoy a comfortable night before bigger changes begin on Monday. That is when a cold front is going to roll in from the northeast and this bring a better supply of moisture to most of the state. Northeastern and the Eastern Plains will be the focus for the strongest storms and that is where Flash Flood Watches are up for Monday afternoon into the evening hours. This cold front will continue to push to the south and west impacting the Rio Grande Valley by Monday night. The front will crank up the canyon wind in the metro Monday night with gusts up to 35 mph. The canyon wind will push even more moisture into the metro to trigger another round of scattered storms on Tuesday. After a pretty active start to the week, we will quickly dry out and heat up by mid-week.
