A strong backdoor cold front will work its way southward and westward into the eastern plains of New Mexico Thursday afternoon and evening. This front will arrive in southeastern New Mexico late Thursday night or early Friday morning. Colder and wetter conditions will follow the frontal passage. 

Meanwhile a strong upper level storm will dive into northwestern Mexico tomorrow afternoon. This storm will form a cutoff upper level low that should be located over the central Baja, Mexico Region by Saturday evening. Model forecasts have it opening up and ejecting northeastward into West Texas by next Monday.

A mix of lowland cold rains and mountains snows is coming up locally. Some locations may actually see some moderate to heavy rainfall. We may see a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow across parts of the southeastern plains Friday night, Saturday night, and Sunday morning. The models are doing better but haven't nailed down the exact details just yet. Its also possible that some of us lowlanders may see accumulating snow this weekend although the favored areas will the mountains.
