Day Planner: Friday, October 17th, 2014

A mild start to the day will be followed by another warm afternoon, for most.  A weak front will move into NE New Mexico and will bring some cooler temperatures.  Elsewhere, it will be very mild.  Mostly sunny to partly cloudy with highs in the 70s and 80s.  Also, winds will turn breezy this afternoon.  By the weekend, our next storm system will bring the chance for rain back into the forecast.  Late Sunday into next week is where we’ll see the most favorable set-up for rain and storms.


Clouds Close In…

Clouds will increase across the state from west to east during the day tomorrow.  Not only will we see clouds increase but will also see a cold front punch and northeastern New Mexico knocking down temperatures and kicking up winds a bit. A week storm system will approach as well and that storm system could well touch off a few showers on Saturday.  I wouldn’t expect widespread rain but we could see scattered showers through the weekend and then things get far more interesting for the beginning of next week.

The storm track will move down into New Mexico Monday through Wednesday next week. Two separate storms will drop down into the state expanding the chance for rain Monday through the midweek time period. Below is a look at what the Canadian model thinks we will see you by midweek. As you can tell widespread rain a a real possibility.

Another Nice One Coming…

October 15th, 2014 at 9:31 pm by under Weather

A mix of high clouds and sunshine was the rule today across all of New Mexico with warm temps as well with highs topping out in the 70s. We’re looking at a similar setup for Thursday with partly to mostly sunny skies and temperatures back into the 70s and in some cases out east the 80s. As we head toward the weekend we will see a weak whether disturbance work its way into the state. The storm could touch off some scattered showers but overall lacks the punch necessary for big time and widespread rain.

More significant changes arrive next week as deeper troughs take aim on the state. A series of storms will carve out cold air and a chance for valley rain and mountain snow across the state. Below is a look at the next 7 to 10 days of projected accumulated precipitation. As you can see in pockets we could do pretty well for rain and mountain snow.

Day Planner: Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Not as chilly to start, but still cold.  Through the afternoon we’ll see plenty of sunshine with warming temperatures.  Highs today will peak in the 70s and even 80s. Over the next few days our temperatures will stay pretty comfortable with 50s in the mornings and 70s through the afternoon.  Expect a few more clouds overhead by Friday and the weekend.


Quiet Weather For Now…

High pressure over the Southwest will get squashed over the next couple of days. The result will be more of a west to east flow across New Mexico. This will lead to rising temperatures and partly sunny skies. Temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday will rise up into the high 70s in most areas of the state after a cool morning start in the 30s and 40s.

Things get more interesting over the weekend as a weather disturbance rolls into the state from the Southwest. This will not be a particularly wet system and it will not bring a lot of rain or snow but we do have a chance at a few showers. As you can see from the model information below the best shot lies from northeast southwest in a scattered fashion on Sunday. More on this as we get closer.
