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!

Sunny and cool again to start the day. This afternoon will be warm, partly cloudy with the chance for isolated evening storms. Not a statewide wash out, but some pockets of heavy rain will be possible. Tomorrow and Sunday we will be tracking s storm system to our NW and N that will help drive our rain and storm chance up. In the metro area, Sunday will be our best chance for rain and storms. Following this system will be our first taste of real Fall weather. Morning lows in the 50s and highs in the 70s for the metro area next week.

After a classic scattered thunderstorm type day across southern and central New Mexico we will start to turn our focus to a more interesting weekend weather pattern.
A broad area of low pressure will work it’s way in from the Pacific Northwest toward the mountain west by Saturday into Sunday. Most models have this storm dipping its way into northern New Mexico late in the day on Sunday and bringing with it more rain and the possibility of some high mountain snow.
There is some uncertainty on the track of the storm, below is the latest look it where it may well be headed.
Right now the bust potential on the system is 55%. What we need to see is a little more consistency from the models on where this thing is headed and how much precip it will bring stay tuned.

Today will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy, spot storms, with highs near 84°. Tonight will be mostly clear, cool, with lows near 61°.
