The warming trend continues today with highs above normal. West winds will keep western and central NM quite dry, with higher low level moisture lingering over eastern NM. A few showers/storms are possible across the far NE from Raton to Clayton this afternoon and evening.
A cold front will arrive in eastern New Mexico on Tuesday, bringing gusty winds along with the cooler temperatures.
Tuesday's cold front will spread gusty winds across the eastern plains of New Mexico during the day. The front will then surge through the gaps and canyons within the central mountain chain by Tuesday evening.
Ingredients seem to be coming together to increase the chances for wetting rain later this week. A surge of Gulf moisture will bring the fuel for the storms with a Pacific storm system over northern CA bringing the energy needed for afternoon thunderstorm activity. Questions remain on timing and how much moisture will make it into NM.
Yesterday's high and low temperatures and precipitation across northern and central New Mexico.
