Thunderstorms in eastern New Mexico are looking promising near the Texas border. Furthermore, northeast New Mexico is poised for supercell development within the next few hours. The severe threat in these areas should subside by 7 pm tonight. Meanwhile, a Pacific low will provide lift for showers in western and central New Mexico.
A backdoor front Wednesday night will rapidly cool down the eastern plains and lower the snow elevation down to the Raton Pass. The highest peaks of the Sangres could reach a foot of snow between Thursday and Friday. Friday is still on track to be the wettest and coolest day of the week for Albuquerque.
