Moisture trapped in the dome of high pressure will translate into more mountain showers. Showers will slide into places like Las Vegas, Springer, and possibly as far as Tucumcari. Wednesday will have a nominal amount of these mountain showers with slightly warmer temperatures. Thursday will be the hottest day of the week prior to the cold front on Friday.
Southwest winds will be strong on Friday and bring drier air to the state. It might be cloudier, but showers will be hard to come by in the valleys. The front will produce some isolated showers in the northwest highlands. The dry line sets up in New Mexico Friday morning. This could initiate some isolated showers in eastern border counties, but the meat and potatoes of the severe weather will certainly be in Texas Friday night. This weekend will keep the dry westerly flow going with temperatures slightly below average.
