What to know ahead of Sunday's severe weather — FIRST ALERT DAY

What goes up, must come down; tracking storms and colder air

Strong winds from the NW and highs only in the low to mid 60s will make Sunday feel nearly winter-like!

Behind the front, there will be another blast of cooler air moving in on Monday. Highs both days will be in the 70s. It's going to be with us through Saturday night, bringing a risk of strong to severe storms with it.

Southerly winds 15-20 miles per hour with gusts to 25-30 miles per hour will occur ahead of a strong cold front, which will arrive overnight. Also, the chilliest morning during the work week looks to be Tuesday with lower 40s otherwise nighttime temperatures will mainly be in the 50s. The biggest risk with the storms will be wind gusts of 50 to 65 miles per hour. Review your severe weather plan and know what you should do if a severe storm or tornado is near you. However an isolated tornado can not be ruled out. Severe thunderstorms will be possible in advance of the cold front this afternoon through this evening and overnight. Flooding is listed as a lesser threat, with the exception of localized flooding from periods of heavy rain. Nighttime temperatures will be in the middle 50s amid blustery south winds sustained at 25 to 30 miles per hour, gusting up to 45 miles per hour and potentially higher in a few storms. Monday look for valley rain and mountain snow to continue with isolated afternoon thunderstorms. Highs return to the 80s Wednesday through Friday.




We'll have sunshine Monday with afternoon temperatures in the upper 30s followed by mid 40s Tuesday.

The threat of severe weather and storms should end quickly early tomorrow afternoon, with cloudy skies accompanied by temperatures holding mostly in the 60s, possibly clearing just in time for sunset. There is a slight chance for storms Thursday evening along the Texas/New Mexico state line.
