Kristen’s Wednesday Morning Forecast

Finishing up summer with a shot at rain...

WEDNESDAY: Most are waking up to a cloudy sky while a lucky few within northwest and northern NM pick up some light to moderate rain this morning. More scattered to widespread showers and storms are expected to develop over the western 2/3rds of the state by late day. Those within east-central and southeast NM will see a bit more cloud cover but will likely miss out on most of the rain action. Afternoon temperatures will be comfortable and near average for this time of year – expect highs to top out in the mid-80s across the Rio Grande Valley.

THURSDAY: Another round of scattered showers is likely to develop over western and northern NM. Expect temperatures to climb back into the 70s, 80s and 90s under a mostly to partly sunny sky.

LOOKING AHEAD: A strong fall-like storm is expected to drop south of the Great Basin Friday into the weekend. Attached to this storm will be a strong cold front – likely to drop our temperatures 5°-15° over the weekend. As for how much rain we’ll see out of this set-up… that’s still in question.
