A few areas of virga, or very dry showers, will be possible today

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Sparse thunderstorms will be possible Thursday afternoon with any
activity in west central New Mexico producing little rainfall, dry

A frontal boundary will arrive into New Mexico on Thursday, leading
to gusty winds in the eastern plains during the day. Gusty winds will
then surge into the Rio Grande valley Thursday evening with gusts of

On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday isolated to scattered thunderstorms
are expected with some storms having the potential for localized

Strong winds could return to New Mexico early next week along with
the threat of critical fire weather due to lower humidity.
