Low level moisture will slosh back and forth across the eastern half of New Mexico, reaching as far west as the Rio Grande Valley by Saturday night. This low level moisture, combined with the storm system to our west, will produce showers and thunderstorms. Heavy rain may be possible in some locations in eastern New Mexico.

Drier and warmer weather returns again early next week.
