A rather strong upper level system will bring a chance showers and storms mid-week. Upper level trough (low pressure) will develop in California and swing through the Southwestern United States between now and Friday. This upper level storm along with a cold front may present the threat of strong thunderstorms during the day Wednesday. The main threat Wednesday will be damaging winds and large hail with these storms. Thursday we turn our attention to the winds as the upper level system sits on top of New Mexico. Gusty winds will be with us during the day Thursday and cooler drier air starts advecting into the region. By Friday and the weekend the storm system is over the panhandle of Texas, allowing for a quiet weather pattern to spill into our region. The dry and seasonally warm weather pattern will likely last well into next week.
