A backdoor cold front which brought rainfall should return to the area by the weekend, according to the National Weather Service in Albuquerque.
"There will be a similar cold front which produced the weekend showers which will move into Quay County on Sunday," said meteorologist Todd Shoemake.
He said there will be a chance for showers to develop in the northern part of the state during the week, though the precipitation will be north of Tucumcari.
Shoemake said Tucumcari reported 1.5 inches of rain, while San Jon reported 1.73 inches. In May of 2011, neither Tucumcari nor San Jon had any rain.
