Scattered storms today will linger into the evening, with very slow movement. Occasional lightning, small hail, locally heavy rainfall, and erratic gusty winds will be the main hazards.

The heat ramps up while storm coverage trends down through Thursday. The century mark will be reached across portions of the eastern plains Thursday and into the weekend. Questions remain concerning storm coverage and strength through the northwestern half of the state Friday, so stay tuned.

Summer Safety

Today is the first day of meteorological Summer! Meteorologists often refer to seasonal start times on the first of the month (December 1st, March 1st, June 1st, September 1st). This creates consistency between years, because the official start of the season, the Summer Solstice, often varies every year by a day or so. For example, last year the Summer Solstice occurred on June 21, 2019, however it will occur on June 20th this year.

With that in mind, it's time to get ready for Summer weather hazards by visiting our Summer Safety website! weather.gov/wrn/summer-safety #SummerSafety

Isolated to scattered storms favoring the western and northern high terrain will gradually taper off through the evening hours, while also drifting over adjacent valley areas.

The heat builds in as storm coverage trends down Monday through Thursday. A Pacific storm system will increase chances for storms across the northwestern half of the state Friday, but uncertainty remains with coverage and timing, so stay up-to-date as we get closer.

At my hose in Roswell nm At 650 pm tonight
Today’s record heat in Tucumcari might have been influence a little bit by a fire on the airport property!?! Dry grass, winds and a blown tire on the freeway are not a good mix. (Taken by Michelle Farrow)
Tonight’s full moon hanging out over thunderstorms that form in New Mexico but ended up in Texas. Taken by Michelle Farrow - East of Tucumcari on State Highway 278
At 757 pm getting closer to roswell nm this evening
Storm total rainfall 06/02/2020 as of 7:30 PM Rio Rancho, Northern Meadows subdivision, 0.03" rain gauge measured.
Any word yet on a monsoon forecast? I've been hearing from various other sources that a La Niña is forming in the Pacific, which usually mean good monsoons for us. A, is this true, and B, how soon would such a La Niña have to form to influence our monsoons?

Fort Sumner total 2” snow!
Backside of a small storm that went past us - East of Tucumcari on State Highway 278. I only got a few sprinkles but a few miles to he south got a little more than that.
Check this out at 458 pm in Roswell nm
I want to applaud your team for an excellent "Learn to be a Weather Spotter" video on Youtube from 2017. Absolutely nails it.
