Our large mid-upper level storm was still located over Nevada as of midnight last night. The models slowly begin to open this closed low up and move it eastward later today into Wednesday. Copious amounts of mid and high level moisture continue to stream northeastward from Tropical Storm Raymond.
Scattered thunderstorms are forecast for the southeastern plains and parts of west Texas later this afternoon, and our chances for getting wet will increase tonight, and continue into tomorrow. The dryline will sharpen up over the local area as the storm to our northwest begins to open up and move eastward.
Strong gusty southwesterly winds will rake the area Wednesday as the bulk of the storm slides across northern New Mexico. Some gusts will likely get up into the 40 - 50 mph range, especially over and near the mountains.
Cooler air will move in behind a Pacific cold front Wednesday night into Friday with our daytime highs dropping back down into the 60's to mid 70's. Our overnight lows will dip down into the 30's.
