MONDAY: A few weak showers spread out across southern and west-central NM will continue to fade through sunrise… leaving behind light rain and a mostly cloudy sky. Morning temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s will warm into the 70s, 80s and 90s by late day – most of us topping out slightly below normal for this time of year. With the help of a system further west, spotty to scattered storms and showers will re-develop this afternoon and evening. Favorable rain chances will lie within western and central NM, although, a few spotty storms are possible within the Eastern Plains as well.
TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY: We’ll back off on the rain chances just slightly as we approach midweek… but don’t expect a complete dry out. Spotty to scattered storms will be possible for the western 2/3rds of the state with the best rain chances favoring north-central & northwest NM. Afternoon temperatures will climb back into the 70s and 80s for majority of the state.
WEDNESDAY & THURSDAY: An incoming system combined with a back door cold front will help boost rain chances late Wednesday into Thursday nearly statewide. Expect noticeably cooler temperatures (especially further east) with scattered to widespread storms through Thursday night.
