Another hot day is ahead for Sunday and it is going to be even hotter than it was on your Saturday.   Albuquerque will break into the 90s while the southeast hits the triple digits.   Roswell, Artesia, and Carlsbad will all be within 2-3° of their record high temps that were set back in 2011.   Socorro will also come close to its record of 98°.  The forecast right now is  for 97°.  So stay cool while you enjoy the rest of the Labor Day Holiday weekend!


More Rain Ahead…

Tuesday’s Rain Outlook

We saw an uptick in the thunderstorm activity on Monday afternoon and more storms are on the way for Tuesday.   An area of low pressure is going to dive to the south and that will trigger even more storms for central and western New Mexico.   Most of the action was in the east on Monday but with this low moving into the Four Corners the action will shift to central and western NM.  Some areas could get a .50″ or more so flooding will likely be concern Tuesday afternoon.


A Beautiful Start to the Weekend…

Sunday's Rain Outlook

Sunday’s Rain Outlook

It was a picture perfect Saturday! Tons of sunshine and comfy high temperatures after a very cool morning!   We will see more sunshine for Sunday, but some moisture will sneak back in and that could trigger some storms around the mountains and in Southern New Mexico.   The storms won’t be widespread but there could be more action for the second half of your weekend compared to Saturday afternoon.

Once we get through Sunday, we will see even more moisture being pumped into New Mexico and that will give us a better shot for more widespread thunderstorm activity as you head back to work or school on Monday.   Stay tuned!

 


Cold Front Moving In Today…

A cold front is diving in from the Northeast and this will trigger more scattered storms and periods of heavy rain for parts of the state.   The Northern Mountains and the Northeast will have the best shot for rain today, but even Santa Fe and Albuquerque could get another round of storms.    Storm chances will continue for central and western New Mexico on Monday before some changes will push shower chances farther north and west on Tuesday.


Some Storms Today, More on Sunday

Saturday’s Forecast High Temperatures

Some clouds are rolling through the state this morning with some light spotty showers in parts of southern New Mexico.   Storm chances will again increase later this afternoon.  We will first see the storms fire around the mountains and eventually drift into some of the valley locations.    Albuquerque and parts of central New Mexico will have a chance for some spot storms today.

That’s because a cold front will be moving into the northeast.   The front will bring more moisture and the energy needed to trigger more storms for the second half of the weekend.
