TUESDAY: Today will look and feel very similar to what unfolded on Monday – expect high temperatures to climb well into the 70s, 80s and 90s statewide underneath a mostly to partly cloudy sky. Spotty to scattered storms are likely over northern and western NM with more spotty coverage expected for central portions of the state. A few isolated storms are possible over the Sacramento Mountains, however, these storms will be few and far between.
WEDNESDAY: Another round of spotty to scattered storms is likely over northern and western NM – main threat: heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning. Temperatures will be near average, if not, slightly cooler than normal for areas west of Interstate-25.
THURSDAY into FRIDAY: As we get closer to the later half of the work week, we’re continuing to keep tabs on a tropical depression that is likely to become “Tropical Storm Kevin”. As this storm nears the western coast of Mexico, high pressure over Texas and low pressure further north will combine to help pull in some of Kevin’s tropical moisture into the state. Details to come as we get closer.
