Spot, gusty storms will continue for the next couple of hours before winding down around sunset and just in time for the fireworks. Moisture today is pretty limited so the storms aren’t widespread and they do not last for very long. Expect the storms to last for another hour or two before they really start to fizzle out. If you are headed out for some cookouts or fireworks this evening just keep your eye to the sky, but most areas will be dry for the firework displays tonight.
An area of high pressure will continue to control New Mexico’s weather for the middle of the week. This high pressure system will heat things up and keep storms limited to the higher terrain. Afternoon temperatures will be approaching record territory for eastern New Mexico this week.
