Kristen’s Tuesday Morning Forecast

Another disturbance = another round of storms

TUESDAY: A few pockets of light rain continue to drift over southeast NM this morning with more to come late day. Most of us are waking up to mostly to partly clear conditions with temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s. Afternoon temperatures will be similar to what we felt Monday with most of us topping out in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Like yesterday, another disturbance will roll out of Arizona and into northwest NM allowing another round of showers & thunderstorms to fire. Expect storms and showers to begin redeveloping by noontime – continuing through the evening hours. Areas most favorable for significant rain will lie within northern/western NM (particularly the higher terrain) and far southeastern corner, although, more spotty coverage is still likely across central and eastern NM. Threats: heavy rain leading to localized flooding, frequent lightning and gusty winds

WEDNESDAY: The mentioned disturbance will continue crossing northern NM and allow more storms and showers to develop through midweek. Afternoon temperatures will stay near to just below average for this time of year. Late Wednesday into Thursday, an incoming cold front will begin edging it’s way into the far northeast. Greater impacts seen on Thursday.
