Weak Cold Front Friday Night & Better Chances For T-Storms.
Valid @ 6 PM MDT Sunday.
As Of 5:30 AM MDT This Morning.
We've seen a pattern change over the past couple of weekly locally. Our spring severe weather season has transitioned over to more of a summer monsoon-like pattern. A few hit and miss thunderstorms have occurred over the southeastern plains but most of this activity has developed over and near the mountains.
A weak cold front will drop down the eastern plains and into southeastern New Mexico and West Texas Friday night into Saturday morning. After seeing high temperatures today in the mid to upper 90's we will only be in the mid-upper 80's behind the front Saturday afternoon. So this front will drop our afternoon high temps down about 10-degrees.
We will see an increase in thunderstorm activity as a result of the frontal passage Friday into Monday. Again the most widespread activity and the heaviest rains will likely fall over the mountains. Some locations may end up with storm totals over 2" by Monday.
