Eric's Sunday night forecast

We’re now beginning to see stronger wind gusts returning to our region tonight. Clouds started increasing late this afternoon. All of these speak of a shift in our weather. Our temps warmed, once again, above average today. We’ve enjoyed above average highs, or May level temps, all of April. Expect a pattern change this week though as April weather will be returning.

Tonight, our winds kick up considerably behind a backdoor cold front which will cool highs 15-20 for eastern NM, while only cooling off the metro a few degrees. But overall, it’ll be a cloudier week with rain chances for the eastern plains and northern mountains each afternoon. By next weekend, a new storm system will develop. This has potential in spreading rain showers farther west.
