Showers and a few thunderstorms continue to develop and strengthen across eastern New Mexico this afternoon. This trend will continue, with a few storms becoming strong or even severe. The most likely area for isolated severe storms will be near the Texas border.
Most of the snow accumulation in the northern mountains should occur this morning, then drier air will arrive there by late this afternoon.
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.
Warmer afternoon temperatures west and north, but cooler east central and southeast.
Yesterday's high and low temperatures and precipitation across northern and central New Mexico.
