An upper-level disturbance is getting organized over southeastern New Mexico today. This will increase storm chances this afternoon, especially across southern and eastern New Mexico. This area of low pressure will keep storms going overnight across the eastern half of the state.
The low will act as a focus for more thunderstorms through Sunday, mainly for areas south of I-40, where heavy rain will be possible. Many areas in southern New Mexico through Sunday will have a chance at seeing 1-3 inches of rain, with isolated amounts of 5 inches possible, especially in the higher terrain. Areas north of I-40 will see isolated storm chances through the weekend, but still up to one inch of rain will be possible in localized areas.
