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.

Warmer Weather Ahead…

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.

Rain Chances Continue…

Forecast Rainfall through Wednesday


We are going to pull in moisture from what is left from the tropical system Norbert.   We won’t see the widespread action the models were first promising last week, but if we are to see more rain in Central New Mexico including Albuquerque it will be between Monday afternoon and Tuesday night.   By the middle of the week we start to drying things out.  But, by weeks’ end another strong cold front will move into Northeastern New Mexico.   This will send temps 10-20° below average in places like Las Vegas, Santa Rosa, Tucumcari and even as far south as Roswell and Carlsbad.


Near Record Heat on Sunday…

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!

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.
