We will quickly warm up through the rest of the day but conditions will be similar to yesterday for our first day of Summer. We are in between a ridge and a trough which his keeping most things calm across West Texas. Moisture is continuing to move into New Mexico, but dry and hot air is right on its heels. However, compared to yesterday it looks like the moisture will be pushing the hot and dry air back and keep the clouds around for a couple more days.
Rain has moved across New Mexico for the last few days and now the majority of the state is under a flood watch until tomorrow at 6 AM. As we continue through the work week things will start to dry out and heat up across New Mexico and West Texas before a cool front comes in by the weekend and brings us at and below seasonal temperatures.
