Some locals may experience visibility's down to less than one quarter of a mile. The fog will burn off by noontime. Our afternoon highs today will be near 70.
As the strong upper level storm moves across northern New Mexico tonight and tomorrow a few scattered rain showers and perhaps a thunderstorm will be possible across eastern and southeastern New Mexico. The higher peaks of the Sacramento and Capitan mountains could pick up a couple inches of snow from this passing storm.
A colder airmass behind the departing storm will keep our highs on Monday and Tuesday in the 50's.
