As of 11 AM MST this Monday morning a strong Pacific cold front was located roughly along a Fort Sumner-Hondo-Mayhill-Just East Of El Paso, Texas line and continues moving eastward. A surface low had formed southwest of Clovis. The front will move into the Pecos Valley of southeastern New Mexico between noontime and around 3 PM. Then into West Texas by this evening.
A narrow band of light to moderate rain showers and light to moderate snow showers have formed along and behind the eastward advancing cold front. Not only will the blowing dust that is occurring across southeastern New Mexico continue into this afternoon and maybe this evening, it will get worse as the strong southwesterly winds pick up before and during the frontal passage.
Light rain may mix in with the blowing dust as well then change over to light to moderate snow as our temperatures fall rapidly behind the front passage. Perhaps a dusting to and inch or less of snow will occur across parts of the southeastern plains when this occurs this afternoon.
