Who is ready for some spring rain? An upper level storm located over north-central Baja this morning is forecast to move northeastward and into southeastern New Mexico by Monday. At the same time a southward moving cold front will enter the local area on Monday.
Low level upslope flow behind the flow combined with the lift and instability associated with the upper level low will increase our chances for scattered thunderstorms and rain. Mid level moisture is streaming northward and northeastward from northwestern Mexico and this will aide in the development of rain showers and thunderstorms today into Monday. Rainfall totals by Monday night in the range of .50" to 1.50" will be possible.
Monday will be cooler with overcast and rainy skies. Most of the local area will be in the 50's and 60's. The next chance for rain will come Wednesday into the end of the week with the next upper level low approaching from the Desert Southwest.
