Chilly entrance strikes in northeastern NM in a single day

It was windy! The peak gusts that afternoon hit 35-45 mph across the state. The winds will ease somewhat tonight as a strong low pulls east over the central plains. But a back door cold front will pervade overnight, maintaining the chance of rain for northeast New Mexico from Sunday through Tuesday afternoon.

The state will be divided, not only about the probability of rain, but also about temperatures. The western half remains completely dry and has above-average temperatures, while in the east there is cooler, rainy weather until midweek. The counties of Colfax and Union will have the highest rainfall. Otherwise only a few showers east of the northern central mountains.

A high pressure ridge then builds up again in the region to close next week, raising temperatures for the subway well into the mid-80s.
