Warm & Breezy Into The Weekend.

Today's Outlook.

Warmer temps are on headed our way starting this afternoon. Most of SE NM will see highs close to 80 today and tomorrow. A few of us may even climb up into the low 80's tomorrow afternoon. We can expect to see the mid 70's on Sunday.

Southwesterly breezes will kick up across the area this weekend, mostly around 15-25 mph with a few higher gusts at times. These winds will be stronger across the Guadalupe Mountains with gusts near 45 mph expected. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for the Guadalupe Mountains today and a Fire Weather Watch has been issued for all of SE NM for tomorrow.

Upper-Level Storm Arrives Monday.
Valid At 11 AM MST Mon Nov 21, 2011.

Our next upper-level storm will move across the state Sunday into Tuesday.The models have been backing off on the strength of this next storm with each new run. Instead of moving slowly across the state as a closed upper-level low, the models now are forecasting it to swing across the state as a short wave trough of low pressure, weakening with time.

Valid At 5 AM MST Mon Nov 21, 2011.

Valid Today - Thanksgiving Day.

Our best shot at getting any rain out of this system will occur Sunday night through Tuesday. The best chances of seeing a few rain showers, and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm or two, will generally be off to our north and east, across eastern New Mexico and west Texas.
