October in New Mexico can be an interesting month weather-wise, and this month is living up to that reputation.

A flip back to summer-like temperatures are forecast across the southeastern plains today. Our afternoon highs will climb back up to near 90 to the low 90's. A cold front will push southward through the area tomorrow morning, and this will knock our highs back down into the 70's on Wednesday.
As a closed upper-level low located of the coast of California this morning works its way eastward into southern California Thursday and Friday, the dryline is forecast to sharpen up over eastern and southeastern New Mexico. Our chances for scattered thunderstorms will increase starting Wednesday afternoon, but more so Thursday into Friday.
Some of these thunderstorms may become severe on Thursday afternoon, but a better chance of this happening will occur on Friday. Large hail, damaging thunderstorm wind gusts in excess of 60 mph will be possible.
