New Mexico's latest storm was located over northeastern Kansas at sunrise this morning while our next storm was just entering the Pacific Northwest. This next storm will stay north of us so more wind on Sunday. A High Wind Watch has been issued for the Guadalupe Mtn's for Sunday afternoon where southwesterly to westerly winds are forecast to gusts up to around 60 mph.

Highs today and Sunday in SE NM will range from the mid 70's to near 80. A cold front will sweep across the area Sunday night into Monday dropping our highs back down to near 70 on Monday. A few widely scattered thunderstorms may form Sunday afternoon into Monday night but overall the heaviest rains are forecast to remain north of us over northeastern New Mexico.
