Winds remain strong overnight with the chance for a thunderstorm shifting further south over the south-central mountains. The Pacific front will bring a scattered snow showers across the northern mtns where several inches of snow are possible above 8500- 9000 ft.
Southwest winds will increase over the southern half of NM today ahead of a cold front approaching from the west. Wind gusts up to 50 mph are possible around Lincoln and Chaves counties. West winds will become breezy over western NM behind the front.
A cold front approaching from the west will interact with a surge of low level moisture to produce showers and thunderstorms over portions of eastern New Mexico today. A few of the thunderstorms could become strong to severe with hail and damaging wind gusts.
Northeastern NM will see a few remnant showers heading into Saturday as the Pacific storm system moves east of the state. Breezy winds will also remain across the east on Saturday. Conditions continue to clear and warm Sunday with calmer winds.
