Our next storm is moving in a little quicker than originally forecast…

Wild horse

We spent the weekend with some friends at their home in Placitas, NM (near Albuquerque) where they have quite a few wild horses roaming around.

11-8-21: 6:00 pm update…

Our next trough and cold front arrive on Wednesday with precipitation chances starting around sunset on Tuesday. This storm appears to be a clone of our last system, with the odds for meaningful precipitation being very low. At best our mountains could see an inch of snow and the valley 0.05 inches of rain but unfortunately I think most totals will be lower. The trough and front will flush out moisture on Wednesday behind a NW and as of now, I don’t see another chance for precipitation for at least a week.

A cold front will move through our area on Wednesday giving us a tiny chance for some light rain and snow showers. The rest of the week will be colder with lows in the lower 20s and highs in the 50’s.

My forecast…

For those of you who like to “hear” our forecast, we are currently experimenting with a “dial up and text” forecast. Call 877-841-0247 and give it a try! Let us know what you think…

Tuesday: Partly cloudy becoming mostly cloudy with highs in the mid 50’s. Winds will be out of the SW 10-15mph. We could see some light showers moving in after sunset then a chance for more showers during the night. If you live in the higher elevations (8000 feet and above) you may see some snow showers during the night. Most of us will see 0-.02 inches of rainfall and possibly a light dusting of snow for the higher elevations. The mountains could see 0-1 inch of snow overnight.

Wednesday-Monday: Our next cold front arrives on Wednesday, clearing us out for the rest of the week. Lows will drop to the lower 20’s and highs in the low 50’s. Winds will be 10-15 mph with a few gusts over 20mph on Wednesday.
