A Pacific storm system heading from the West will increase rain chances Thursday night, and thunderstorm chances on Friday.
Rain chances will increase to 40% tonight, but will double to 80% for Friday. If thunderstorms hit, they will most likely be active around 11 a.m. Friday. It does not look like there will be any hail with this system.
East El Paso County is likely to see the most activity, so puddling may be an issue. Some parts of the borderland could possible see 1 inch of rain in isolated areas.
High mountain areas and parts of Northern New Mexico will see some snowfall, possibly reaching 3 inches.
Remember that slick roadways will be an issue for your Friday commute, so reduce your speed. Rain chances are not expected to decrease until Friday evening.
If you hear any thunder, head indoors to stay safe. Also, if you see any flooding turn around don’t drown.
