A Cold Front Is A Comin!
July 31, 2016.
Northeast Of Dunken, NM In Southwestern Chaves County.
From the 90's in southeastern New Mexico and Texas to the 50's in Wyoming and the Dakotas as of 4 PM MDT this afternoon. separating these extremes is a strong cold front now entering extreme northeastern New Mexico. This front will continue its march southward tonight arriving in southeastern New Mexico between sunrise and noon Saturday. Our high temps tomorrow and Sunday will be in the 80's. If heavy enough rains fall over a widespread enough area and low clouds stick around Sunday we have some spots only in the 70's. 60's and 70's are forecast for the mountains.
Scattered thunderstorms remain in our local forecast tonight into Sunday. Local National Weather Service storm total rainfall amounts are generally in the .50" to 1.00" range by Monday at sunrise as depicted by the graphic above. Keep in mind that any thunderstorm or a combination of thunderstorms could, and may very well in some locations produce heavier totals. Some of these could be in the 1" to 3" range.
Another precursor to fall...I love it!
