Friday - Saturday.
Late This Afternoon Into Tonight.
Wednesday Into The Weekend.
Wednesday & Thursday.
A short wave trough of low pressure will seep eastward across southern New Mexico this afternoon, and across southeastern New Mexico tonight into tomorrow morning. Late this afternoon a few scattered t-storms are forecast to move off of the mountains and out into the plains. This activity will increase overnight into tomorrow morning.
A few of these t-storms will become strong, and possibly severe. Large hail, damaging t-storm wind gusts, frequent deadly cloud to ground lighting, and locally heavy rain will all be possible with the strongest of these t-storms. This will be especially true over and near the mountains.
The greatest threat for severe weather will be across southern New Mexico this afternoon and evening. The strongest supercell t-storms will be capable of producing hail up to golf ball size, and damaging t-storm wind gusts of 70 mph or higher. Please view this special multimedia weather video presented by the El Paso National Weather Service Office.
Wednesday Into The Weekend-
As this first piece of upper level energy pulls eastward and out onto the Central Plains, a second and more powerful mid-upper level storm will be poised to crawl slowly eastward into the area into the weekend.
Severe t-storms will be possible across SE NM & W TX Thursday into Saturday. Windy weather will return to the area as well as the potent mid-upper level storm approaches from the west. It appears at this time that our best chances for t-storms and severe weather here in SE NM will occur Friday into Saturday.
High mountain snows will fall over the northern New Mexico Mountains Thursday night into Friday. Accumulating snowfall will be possible in these areas. Freezing temperatures will be possible across the Albuquerque valley areas Friday night.
