Heavy rain fell yesterday across the western half of our area and eastern New Mexico. Some showers continue that way this morning, here is the current radar:
TODAY: Showers likely to stay our west this morning, but models are drying some by early afternoon. Then more showers and storms developing west and southwest this afternoon moving to the northeast. Heavy rainfall dropping from showers and storms will add flooding concerns to areas that have received 2-3 inches of rain already. The better chance for rain still looks to be west of I-27 int New Mexico. Mostly cloudy with the high near 83, the southwest wind will be calmer 10-15mph.
TONIGHT: More showers with a few embedded storms possible with a mostly cloudy sky. Low near 67.
THURSDAY: A cold front will slowly push into our area from the north, likely stalling during the day. This will bring an increasing chance for rain across our area with the lesser chances to our southeast. Depending on the time and how far south the front make it will leave us with a range of temperatures. 60s likely to our northern counties with 80s south and southeast.
EXTENDED: Rain chances start to diminish late Friday with more sunshine for the Tech game. The cool down won't last long with temperatures in the 80s this weekend. A few fronts will move through the area. The first Saturday and likely staying dry, the stronger front late Sunday. This looks to bring some rain late Sunday into the morning hours of Monday, with temperatures dropping to the 60s and 70s for the area.
Have a great Wednesday! Matt with the next updated forecast tonight on the News at Nine.
