Valid At 6 AM MDT Sunday.




Big changes in our local weather are on the way beginning tonight. One more day of high temperatures in the upper 90's this afternoon, then a significant cool down will commence tomorrow. The seasons first strong fall-like cold front will barrel southward down the eastern plains later this afternoon and evening. It is forecast to arrive in the northern sections of SE NM by around sunset. By sunrise tomorrow morning it will have pushed south of Carlsbad.

Scattered thunderstorms are forecast to break out along and ahead of the cold front this afternoon, across the central mountains and eastern plains of the state. Coverage of these storms will increase across SE NM as the front enters the area later this evening.

 Scattered thunderstorms and rain showers are forecast to continue into tomorrow morning before dissipating. Our chances for rain have been increased to 30% - 40% tonight into tomorrow morning. Wind gusts to around 50 mph, small hail, and localized areas of blowing dust will accompany these thunderstorms. Severe thunderstorms are not currently anticipated across SE NM as of this writing.

As the cold front pushes southward through the local area later this evening, strong northerly wind gusts to around 40 - 50 will create areas of blowing dust. Much cooler air will overspread the area, with our high temps for tomorrow forecast to range from the mid 70's to around 80. Labor Day will be see highs in the 80's. What a welcome change this will be after three months of non stop 100-degree temps.
