NWS Albuquerque Area Forecast Discussion (AFD) This Morning:
"Storm coverage is expected to increase further early next week across all of western and a good portion of central NM. Models still holding to somewhat varying degrees to the eastward shift of the upper high and thus allowing greater amts of moisture to flow in from the s and se. The easterly wave coming slowly west and nwwrd across Mexico should help to some degree with this as well. With the increasing moisture lvls still being advertised decided to add locally heavy rain wording to the scattered/chance to numerous/likely pops areas starting today and for the aftns through Monday. Today may seem a bit too soon for that, but given the uptick of yesterday felt that we could get away with that as early as today.

My wife and I were headed north up US Hwy 285 to Roswell yesterday afternoon when I shot the above two photos. We were looking northwest-north at the Eddy and Chaves County line just north of Artesia at 3:56 PM MDT. 
This morning I pulled up a snapshot archive of the Cannon AFB Dual Pol Doppler Radar from yesterday afternoon at 3:55 PM MDT. The thunderstorms stretching from our northwest-north were anywhere from 115-180 miles from us. We were first able to see the tops of these storms right after we left Carlsbad...placing them some 210+ miles north of us.
