A strong backdoor front will bring colder temperatures and windy conditions to eastern NM today. A few storms are possible over the Sangre de Cristo's this afternoon. Dry and warm conditions remain for western and central NM.
The backdoor front will surge through the central mtn chain this evening and overnight bringing strong gap winds to ABQ and Santa Fe. Strong NE winds also pick up over eastern NM, including Clovis and Portales.
In the wake of a cold front, temperatures will be cooler area wide on Wednesday. Readings will run 5 to 20 degrees below normal in central to eastern areas of New Mexico while western areas remain near to slightly above average.
It still appears Gulf moisture will make its way into NM late this week into the weekend, increasing the chances for precipitation over the state. Questions remain on how strong the moisture push will be and when it will reach NM. Models also handle a Pacific storm system differently over northern CA, which will be needed to initiate any storms over the state.
Yesterday's high and low temperatures and precipitation across northern and central New Mexico.
