(As Of 6 AM MDT This Morning).
Yesterday was hot and somewhat humid. Carlsbad checked in with 101°F at the airport. Today will be cooler behind the cold front with most of the southeastern plains climbing up into the 80's to near 90. It will be in the 60's and 70's in the Sacramento mountains.
Regional radar and satellite data show a couple of thunderstorm complexes (MCS) moving southward through New Mexico early this morning. One was located over the northeastern plains, a second one was developing over the eastern plains, and a third was located over south central New Mexico extending eastward into the southeastern plains near Roswell. These thunderstorm complexes are moving off to the south and southwest.
Additional development will continue locally into the forenoon hour before this activity dissipates. A few scattered afternoon and early evening thunderstorms will also develop today. Later tonight another complex of thunderstorms may develop and move south into the southeastern plains from the eastern plains of the state. Locally heavy rainfall will again be possible in some areas.
