Rain & T-Storms Return To NM. High Mtn Snows Too.



A fast moving cold front entered the southeastern plains of New Mexico early this morning. With it came cooler temps with this afternoon highs ranging mostly in the low-mid 60's. Thursday will be a little warmer with highs in the 70's ahead of our next approaching storm from the west. Rain and thunderstorms return Thursday afternoon into Saturday morning.



Next Storm Affects The Area Thursday Night
 Into Saturday Morning.

Valid @ 6 AM MDT Friday.

A trough of low pressure at the mid and upper levels of the atmosphere currently located along the West Coast is forecast to deepen and strengthen as is dives southeastward tonight into Thursday. By Friday morning a closed 500 millibar low should be located just to our west, south of the Tucson area. This next storm is forecast to slide to the east and begin opening up as a trough of low pressure on Friday into Saturday.  

Rain & Scattered T-Storms Return.

Valid @ 6 PM MDT Friday.

Another round of scattered thunderstorms and rain will impact the area Thursday afternoon into Saturday morning. The heaviest rains should fall Thursday night into Friday night. It appears that generally speaking that the southeastern plains will on average receive .25" to .75" of rainfall with a few spots perhaps getting heavier totals in the 1" to 2" range. Although severe thunderstorms are not currently anticipated a few of the stronger thunderstorms may produce small hail and gusty winds. The rains should come to an end by Saturday morning as the upper level storm begins to move northeastward out of the area.


Snow levels are currently forecast to drop down to around 9,000' in the southern areas of the state and around 8,000' in the northern mountains by Friday night. Cloudcroft may see a rain and snow mix, possibly late Thursday night into Friday morning, and again Friday night. Ski Apache west of Ruidoso may pick up 3"-7" of the white stuff Thursday into Friday night.
