This mornings WRF/NAM model has the tongue of colder arctic air at the 850 millibar level, or the 5,000' mean sea level, a little further south and west than the GFS model has been forecasting. It falls a little more in line with the European model (ECMWF) forecasts of the past few days. 

So if the model is correct then the strong back-door cold front will arrive in southeastern New Mexico and west Texas by sunrise Tuesday morning. Strong gusty northerly to northeasterly winds accompanied by falling temperatures, and wind chill values in the 30's, will certainly make for a chilly day Tuesday. 

If this model is correct then we may not get out of the 40's for daytime highs on Tuesday. A few light rain showers or pockets of drizzle along with low clouds will make for a dreary morning and afternoon also.
