THURSDAY: Pockets of light rain will continue to hang over west-central and southeast NM through sunrise… with more showers expected late day. Favorable rain chances will lie to the south of I-40 – similar to what radar looked like Wednesday. There is a possibility that storms over the southeast gain enough strength to turn severe – we’ll keep you updated if any storms cross that threshold. Afternoon temperatures will top out near to just below average for this time of year – expect widespread 50s, 60s and 70s across the state. Unfortunately, pesky east winds are likely to continue through most of the day (sustained: 15-25mph / gusts: +30mph).
FRIDAY: A strong storm spinning in Arizona will continue to edge closer to NM, helping boost rain chances across the state. Scattered to widespread showers and storms are likely to develop through the day with cooler temperatures to match (50s and 60s).
SATURDAY: The mentioned storm will continue its slow trek to the northeast, continuing to provide lift and pull up moisture over the state. Expect another day of on and off showers with cool afternoon highs.
SUNDAY: A handful of showers and storms are likely to linger over eastern NM to finish the weekend while the remainder of the state dries out and warms up.
