Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms some with heavy
downpours and gusty winds increased today across western and
central New Mexico, and across pretty much of eastern New Mexico.
A broken line of thunderstorms impacted the east central and
southeast plains throughout the afternoon. Rainfall amounts so
far ranged from one and three of rain across extreme eastern
plains. The highest rainfall reports so far 1.90 inches at
Sugarite, 1.28 inches at Mesa and 1.02 inches near Conchas Dam.
Extremes high temperatures today ranged from 86 degrees at Socorro
to 60 degrees at Angel Fire. Look for some showers and thunderstorms
to linger throughout the night the across the north central and
eastern highlands and plains. Low temperatures tonight will range
from the 30s to the 40s northern mountains and across the western
high terrain of the state, lower elevations will see lows in the
50s to the low 60s.

A cold front will push across the western portions of the state
tonight, bringing in a cooler and drier airmass across the region
which will help low temperatures to drop below normal for a couple
of nights in a row. The coldest low temperatures since mid May
are likely across much of northern and central New Mexico.
