WEDNESDAY: Another round of afternoon storms and showers is likely for western and northern New Mexico. Heavy rain, gusty winds and frequent lightning will be of top concern. Afternoon temperatures will be similar to what was felt on Tuesday – expect 70s, 80s and 90s statewide (warmest temps found closer to the NM/TX stateline).
THURSDAY: With the help of a tropical depression (what is likely to become Tropical Storm Kevin within the next 24 hours), increasing moisture streaming in from the south will help widespread to numerous showers and storms develop over western, central and northern New Mexico. Isolated to spotty storms are also possible over the Plains. With the expected widespread showers and cloud cover, afternoon temps will take a noticeable dip with a good portion of western NM only topping out in the 70s & 80s, below average for this time of year.
