Drier air has begun pushing into New Mexico Monday. The northwest half of the state hasn’t seen any storm formation thanks to that drier air. Meanwhile moisture across the east is fueling some strong storms throughout the afternoon hours. The drier air will win out on Tuesday pushing any storms out of the state. The big story on Wednesday will be a cold front that will slide into eastern New Mexico knocking temperatures down up to 20 degrees.
There’s really not much storm action on the horizon through Thursday. Even though it will feel like Fall across the east briefly, temperatures will rebound quickly Thursday afternoon. Look for a better chance for storms by the weekend.
