ABC-7 First Alert: Rain clears out leaving dry and sunnier conditions

Good Saturday morning to you. Many of us are waking up to rain and soggy front and back yards. Expect a few more drizzles through the morning but the rain will slowly be moving out of the area and weakening rapidly as it does. Reports from the International Airport show that we received .23" of rain overnight. At the Las Cruces airport rain gauge, it appears like .05" was captured. Over the next few hours, the rain and clouds will move to the east and out of our area, leaving behind much sunnier and drier conditions. It makes me sad, but I've certainly enjoyed the rain we've had.

Late tonight a back door cold front will move into the area. I don't think the impacts of this front will be too noticeable for us as we've been dealing with cool temps and rain making us feel cooler. Overnight lows will be chilly (mid to upper 30s), but that is still above average this time of year. The front will bring in some winds, but they won't be very strong. I think the mountainous areas will feel them the most as they filter through the canyons and such, but for the rest of us, expect winds around 10 mph late tonight. For the week ahead, sunny skies will stay in place. It looks like winds overall will not be strong for the week ahead. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
