MONDAY: A few weak snow showers over the Northern Mountains will continue to fade as we head pass sunrise… but there will be more rain and snow to come in other parts of the state this afternoon. Moisture being pumped in from the south will allow a handful of spot showers to develop over southwest and west-central NM by late day. The majority of us can expect a boost in cloud cover with better rain chances holding off for one more day. Breezy to windy conditions will return to the area with the strongest winds found in and along the higher terrain of the northern and central mountains. Afternoon temperatures will be down 10 degrees compared to this past weekend, leaving most of us in the 40s, 50s and 60s by late day.
TUESDAY: A strong storm passing to the south of the state will help pull in moisture over the region. Spotty to scattered showers are likely to break out across the area, with more rain expected than snow. A few isolated thunderstorms are also possible within southern and eastern NM. Temperatures will continue to cool with the Albuquerque-metro likely to not leave the 50s.
WEDNESDAY: Drier air will work itself in, cutting off a good chuck of our rain chances. A few leftover showers and thunderstorms are possible within the Plains – but the remainder of us can expect more sunshine and warmer temperatures to round out midweek.
