Today is going to be cloudy, warm and windy. A Red Flag Warning has been issued for all of SE NM. Our afternoon highs are forecast by our local National Weather Service Offices to climb up into the mid 70's. Tomorrow's highs will be in the low 70's.

Southwesterly winds at around 20-30 mph with gusts to around 35-40 mph are forecast today and tomorrow across the southeastern plains. A few higher gusts may be experienced near the foothills and mountains. Southwesterly winds will gust up to around 40-60 mph across the higher elevations of the Guadalupe, Sacramento, and Capitan Mountains today.

A slow moving cutoff (it is cutoff from the main jet stream flow to its north) upper-level low is forecast by the models to approach our area today and tomorrow. It should open up, and be located over SE NM on Monday as a short wave trough of low pressure.

We have a slight chance of seeing a few light rain showers and perhaps a t-storm or two tomorrow night into Monday, as this upper-level storm draws near. Snow levels will remain fairly high with this storm. generally around 9,000' MSL.
