Strong to even severe thunderstorms are possible in eastern New Mexico this afternoon. A cold front has moved into the eastern half of the state and this front will act as a trigger for showers and storms. Some of the storms could produce large hail and high wind once they develop later today. Central and western New Mexico will see mostly to partly sunny skies with the canyon wind picking up out of the east tonight in Albuquerque. This canyon wind and cold front will help push moisture farther west into central and western New Mexico for Saturday. Scattered storms will be likely along the Central Mountain Chain and into western New Mexico for the start of the weekend. Storms will be less numerous on Sunday with drier air slowly working in. By Monday, storms will be limited to the higher terrain with warmer temperatures to begin next week.
