A winter storm is headed for New Mexico Wednsday into Thrusday. National Weather Service Forecasters have now dropped out highs temps in SE NM, down into the 30's on Thursday. We still stand a decent chance of seeing snowfall across the area, but how much is still up in the air.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Today will see temperatures much above normal with afternoon highs in the mid 70's. A Wind Advisory has been posted for Chaves County, and northward across the eastern plains. Northwest winds of around 25-35G50 mph are forecast in these areas. A Fire Weather Watch is in effect for southeastern New Mexico today.

A weak cold front will knock our high temperatures back down into the low-mid 60's on Tuesday. But a quick rebound is expected for Wednesday with our highs back up into the mid-upper 70's.

Another upper level storm is forecast is forecast by the models to drop southeastward across the state Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. This next winter storm will bring colder weather and a chance for snow showers to SE NM starting Wednesday night and continuing into Thursday.

Gusty northwesterly-northerly winds behind the cold front will make for some chilly wind chill values Wednesday night and Thursday morning. This next storm will be somewhat moisture starved, but will likely produce accumulating snowfall over the mountains, eastern plains, and parts of southeastern New Mexico.

Highs on Thursday and Friday are only expected to be in the 40's. Our low temperatures will dip back down into at least the teens by Friday morning.
