Chris’ Saturday Evening Forecast

After a mild afternoon today, another cool night is ahead for New Mexico with mostly clear skies. Temperatures on Sunday will then start to warm to seasonal highs or even slightly warmer than average for the second half of the weekend.

Moisture will start to return to parts of eastern New Mexico on Sunday. This could spark spot showers and storms in parts of the Eastern Plains tomorrow.   The moisture will continue to increase across eastern New Mexico for the start of the week plus a cold front will also move into the East. These two weather players will help spark more storm chances across the eastern NM on Monday.

Some of the storms on Monday afternoon could be strong to severe in places like Santa Rosa, Tucumcari, Clovis, Roswell, Artesia, Carlsbad and Hobbs.  That means the storms could produce large hail and winds in excess of 60 mph.  Stay with KRQE for more weather updates and download the KRQE Weather App to get Weather Alerts in your neighborhood.
