The slow moving storm system that we have been talking about for the past several days is finally going to pass through the region on Monday. This will give central and eastern New Mexico a good shot for scattered storms for Monday afternoon. Some of the storms could become severe especially in the Northeast. That is where we could have storms producing large hail and strong, gusty winds between lunch time and dinner time. The system will move out tomorrow night and we will cool things down some for Tuesday and Wednesday.

A strong storm system continues to slowly push to the east, northeast. This area of low pressure picked up the winds on your Saturday and it’ll will keep the winds going for Sunday along with better rain chances. Western New Mexico will have the best shot for storms on Sunday and there could be a few strong to severe storms around the Four Corners by tomorrow afternoon. If the storms do become severe the main threats will be large hail and strong, damaging winds. The rain chances for central New Mexico will go up on Monday as the storm system begins to move out. Behind it, temperatures will be cooler making it feel more like fall.

A strong storm system is going to be impacting parts of New Mexico this weekend. The storm is over Nevada as of Friday night, but eventually it will be crossing over the Four Corners and just far enough south to give central and western New Mexico a pretty good shot for storms beginning Saturday afternoon. First, you’ll likely notice the breezes kicking up on Saturday and western New Mexico will be favored for scattered storms . The storm isn’t going to be a quick mover so the rain chances will continue for western New Mexico and spread into central areas by Sunday afternoon. It looks like there’s only a slight chance for the southeast to get rain from this system. Stay tuned!

Rain Forecast for Friday
Hurricane Odile is a Category 3 with winds of 125 mph and continues to impact Mexico as of Sunday night. We will watch this tropical system as it’s remnants could impact us by the end of the week into next weekend. In the meantime, we are going to deal with another cold front. It isn’t as strong as the last one, but the front will work with the moisture that is in place to trigger storms. The central mountain chain and eastern New Mexico will be favored for storm activity on Monday and then central along with western New Mexico could get in on the action for Tuesday.

Sunday’s Forecast Highs…
High temps on Saturday only made it into the upper 70s in the metro while areas like Roswell and Carlsbad were stuck in the 60s. Theses high temps are more typical for late September or even October! But, more seasonable temperatures will return for Sunday. That’s when high temps will break back into the 80s in the metro and highs will top out in the 70s in the southeast. Another cold front heads our way on Monday. Details on what that will bring on KRQE News 13.
