Good Sunday morning everyone! We’re waking up to overcast skies with some light mist/showers near Socorro and into Valencia County this morning. The higher humidity is creating some foggy conditions with reduced visibility across central New Mexico. Some steadier rain fell near Belen, just north of Socorro with totals topping out near 2″! This was a pretty narrow band of rain so amounts tapered greatly moving north. The ABQ metro received around a half inch. We’ll see some lighter showers throughout the morning and afternoon hours, but not as heavy as Saturday. High temperatures today will be much milder for eastern NM, but similar for central and west. The Rio Grande Valley will reach the lower 50s under overcast skies. We’ll finally see the clouds break apart overnight into Monday.
We’ll also see much higher wind gusts of 40-50 mph Monday afternoon east of the mountains. This will help temps soar into the upper 60s east/lower 70s southeast ahead of our next storm currently diving into northern California. It’ll bring heavy snow to the Sierra Nevada, but mainly wind for New Mexico. We’ll have a chance at some showers midday Wednesday as the next front passes. Temperatures trend much cooler to close next week.
