The clouds have returned along with widely scattered rain showers with a few thunderstorms in the east tonight. So far the rain has been very light with a few stronger thunderstorms in the Eastern Plains. Not everyone will see the rain tonight, but some light to moderate showers will be widely scattered across the state.
A cold front then rolls into the Northeast on Monday. This front will bring mountain snow showers across the north with scattered rain & thunderstorms to the Central Mountain Chain and Eastern Plains on Monday. This cold front will drop temperatures back to near normal or even below average for this time of the year. In addition to cooler temps, the East Canyon Wind will crank up Monday night in Albuquerque with wind gusts around 40 mph.
Another system looks to cross New Mexico on Tuesday. This will bring a better chance for more widespread rain and thunderstorms to most of the state.
We dry out and we will eventually feel warmer temperatures for the middle of the week before another storm system could impact parts of New Mexico by week’s end.
