Very warm and dry weather on tap today for most of NM. Winds will trend lighter than yesterday but still become breezy by the afternoon. A cold front entering far northeastern NM will focus a few showers and storms around Colfax and Union counties.
Showers and thunderstorms will arrive during the holiday weekend, and become widespread on Memorial Day. Be aware of lightning during outdoor activities - you may need to go indoors.
Low pressure developing along the west coast next week will draw moisture northward over New Mexico. A gradual increase in the coverage of showers and thunderstorms is expected. The greatest chances for rainfall will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
Increasing moisture with the cold front will cause the chance for showers and thunderstorms to increase along and east of the northern mountains Saturday afternoon and night. The front and associated moisture will push into central and western areas Saturday night and Sunday morning causing showers and thunderstorms to become more widespread. A slow-moving upper level low pressure system will then move over the upper Baja Peninsula drawing rich moisture for thunderstorms over NM for the bulk of the coming work week.
Another free SKYWARN training session will occur in Abiquiu at 530pm on Wednesday, May 31st. Learn all about severe weather in New Mexico! It's free and we would love to see you there!
When thunder roars, go indoors!
