More Rain & Seasonal Temperatures.



Our next local weather maker is Tropical Depression 16-E  which is located over the central Baja Peninsula at 5 AM MDT this morning. Clouds streaming northeastward from this disturbance will increase over the area this afternoon into Tuesday.

An upper level low will form off of the California Coast and help to turn our flow aloft over the area to the southwest. This will draw the remnant moisture from TD 16-E northward and northeastward into New Mexico today into the middle of the week. The models continue to edge this moisture further to the east with each new run...therefore I won't be surprised if this has a bigger impact upon our local weather that current forecasts indicate. 

 Scattered thunderstorms and areas of rain will also return to southern and southeastern New Mexico this afternoon into Wednesday. Heavy rainfall will be a possibility into at least Wednesday. Storm total rainfall amounts could be in the 1" - 3" range with a few spots possibly picking up more than this. Localized flash flooding may also occur from these heavy rains. A Flash Flood Watch has been issued for most of southwestern and western New Mexico. 

Temperatures will remain seasonable throughout this week with highs in the 70's and 80's.
