Warming Up Today & Wednesday.

A few widely scattered thunderstorms developed across Southeastern New Mexico Easter Sunday afternoon and again later that night. Radar estimated that several of these thunderstorms Sunday night produced moderate to heavy rainfall with estimates ranging from .50" to 1.50". As is often the case the heaviest of these rains missed any online reporting rain gauges. 

Warm today and Wednesday with afternoon high temps across the southeastern plains in the upper 80's to near 90º. The Ruidoso, Capitan, 16-Springs, Mayhill, High Rolls/Mountain Park, Sacramento/Weed, and Timberon areas will see their highs range from near 70º to the mid 70's. The Cloudcroft, Sunspot, and Silver Lake areas will see their highs range from near 60º to the low 60.

A few isolated high based dry thunderstorms are possible across the Sacramento mountains this afternoon. Very little rainfall is expected to fall if any. These may turn out to be mostly virga storms.

As mid/upper-level trough of low pressure is forecast to swing across the state Thursday and Friday. A Pacific cold front will sweep in from the west on Friday with a backdoor cold front approaching on Saturday. Strong southwesterly winds are forecast to plaque the area Thursday and Friday with gusts in the 40-50 mph range likely. Along with areas of blowing dust. 

Next Monday a few of the forecast models are calling for the dry line to back west to the Sacramento, Capitan, and Guadalupe mountains. Perhaps a chance for thunderstorms next Monday afternoon and evening.
