NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – A few pop-up showers and thunderstorms will develop across western New Mexico this afternoon and move east through the evening.
A weak ridge of high pressure begins to build into the region late into this week, bringing in drier and warmer weather. However, an approaching storm system well to our west will bring in upper-level moisture by Friday, but the best surface moisture will stay to the east.
