Once again scattered to numerous severe thunderstorms have fired up along and east of the dry draped across West Texas. This past week has been very active for severe thunderstorms in West Texas.

A mid and upper-level trough of low pressure is located over the area this afternoon and by sunset Memorial Day a closed low may try and develop over West Texas. Northerly winds aloft on the backside of this trough/low will drive a strong late-season cold front southward and into the local area by sunrise Monday morning.

After seeing our daytime highs climb up into the upper 90's to the low 100's for the past couple of weeks Monday will be somewhat of a shocker as we struggle to reach 70. Locally these highs will be some 15 to 25 degrees below normal on Monday. Overcast skies with low clouds will add to the late May gloom.

Tuesday Morning.

Low temperatures Tuesday morning in the cooler air mass behind the front will be rather chilly for late May with readings locally in the 40's to low 50's. 

NWS NDFD Rainfall Totals.

Valid Tonight Through 6 AM MDT Tuesday.

Strong gusty northerly winds will accompany the frontal passage Monday morning along with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms. Locally here in SE NM we have a 20% to 30% chance of getting wet mainly early Monday morning through mid-afternoon. Rainfall total forecasts are not at that impressive though.
