On Sunday, afternoon heating could pop up a few thunderstorms across the eastern plains and near Raton Ridge. The air mass looks too be mostly dry across the mountain areas. With these storms, small hail, lightning, and brief rainfall are possible. Also the wind will start to increase across the mountains and southern I-25 corridor.
Monday, winds will again increase, especially in the evening. Some areas may experience wind gusts in excess of 60 mph at times. There will be a chance for snow in the mountain regions, while the lower elevations could experience some rain and storms.
Tuesday will be cooler, with gusty winds. Winds in excess of 30 mph should be common on Tuesday. Also, increasing snow activity should be noted over portions of the central and southwestern mountains. Thunderstorms and rain will be possible elsewhere.
Thunderstorms will be possible again, for the lower elevations, on Wednesday. Overnight some showers may turn over to snow.
Above seasonal April temperatures are expected for Thursday and Friday. With another chance for storms across the region.
