A Few Showers Today

April 21st, 2014 at 12:12 pm by under Weather

Today will feature a mix of sun and clouds a few afternoon storms. Moisture left over from the weekend and lift over the higher terrain will produce some storms. A few more storms could pop up across the east with sufficient moisture in place.

Temperatures continue to warm up through Tuesday. Then a storm system moves north of the state Wednesday into Thursday. This will boost up the winds across much of the state and give the far northern part of New Mexico a chance at a few more showers and storms.

Winds relax Friday as the storm system exits, but another moves in over the weekend. This storm system will drop farther south giving more of the state a shot a showers and storms late Saturday into Sunday. Temps will also drop on the back end of this storm for Sunday.

Clouds bubbling over the Sandia Mountains Monday morning. Even more moisture over the Sangre de Cristo Mountains led to showers there.

Spot Storms and Much Warmer Weather Ahead…

April 20th, 2014 at 4:56 pm by under Weather

The storm system that brought scattered storms to much of New Mexico this weekend continues to move east.   We are still seeing some storms firing on the backside of the system tonight.   Much of this activity will be winding down after sunset and our skies will continue to clear out for Monday morning.

A cold front will move into the state for Monday and with the moisture we have in place from this weekend, we could have some spot storms pop-up along the central mountain chain and in the Eastern Plains.   But, most areas will be dry for Monday with more sunshine, warmer temps, and breezy conditions.


Some more storms could pop-up again on Tuesday.   However, this time most of the action will be strictly over the mountains.   Storms could fire on Tuesday also thanks to the moisture that is in place from this past weekend and we could see showers developing around lunchtime into mid-afternoon thanks to daytime heating.

The winds will really crank up on Wednesday elevating the fire danger.


Beneficial Rain for parts of New Mexico…

Southern New Mexico picked up the most rain Saturday.   Many areas picking up close 0.25″ or more in some spots.   Some areas like Cloudcroft and Alamogordo were under severe thunderstorm warnings for hail and high winds.


Fortunately, the severe threat is over for tonight, but there is a shot for some more thunderstorms around lunch time into the evening for much of Northern and Eastern New Mexico.   Like Saturday, Easter won’t be a complete washout but we will have the chance for hit or miss showers and storms throughout the day.

Showers for the Holiday Weekend

April 18th, 2014 at 5:07 am by under Weather

Today will feature a few more clouds as a storm system approaches New Mexico. The southwesterly flow ahead of the storm will warm temperatures and boost winds for the afternoon as well.

Spot showers and storms will form over the western high terrain late today. Then as the storm crosses the state, those showers will expand across much of the state. Though the entire state will have the opportunity to get rain, no one location will see an all day rain event.

The storm quickly moves out early Sunday. A few lingering showers will be possible early in the day Sunday, but most of Easter Sunday will be dry. The state continues to dry out as temperatures warm up into early next week.

Albuquerque forecast for Friday.
