Yet another storm promises to bring rain for the Borderland along with some heavy mountain snows. The above microcast computer model is showing just one time period of heavier precip for the region. This latest storm is just now gathering steam across the West Coast United States. The cloudiness ahead of it is just some of the energy, which we are currently seeing in the region. Moisture will not be lacking with this storm, as an upper level system swings in our direction. The storm will bring in moisture from the Pacific in the upper part of the atmosphere, while low level flow (winds) will gather in from the southeast. Tons of clouds around tomorrow will give way to spotty rain showers Tuesday evening and more widespread rains Tuesday night into Wednesday. Snows will fall in the mountains, generally above 7000 feet, especially later on Wednesday through early Thursday. Some of that snow could be rather heavy. Storm swings out of here by Thursday evening with drying weather into the weekend. More details on Newschannel 9 and right here on ktsm.com to come.
