A few spotty showers will also be possible in southern New Mexico.

The cold front will bring a canyon wind into the Rio Grande Valley overnight, with gusts up to 30 mph. It will leave temperatures a few degrees cooler Wednesday afternoon across central and eastern parts of the state. High pressure builds back over New Mexico Thursday and Friday, bringing back the heat. Record and near-record high temperatures will be possible again Thursday through Saturday.
