John’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

Another cold front pushes in today, recharging the moisture across much of the state. With more sunshine earlier in the day, expect a more active afternoon and evening for showers and storms. Some storms, especially across the northeast, could be strong to severe. In areas that have already seen quite a bit a rainfall in the past several days, flash flooding will be a concern.

A drying trend begins Thursday as the ridge of high pressure to the west shifts toward the state. There will be less storm coverage across the west and central sections of the state. A decent round of storms is still expected across the central mountain chain and points east.

The high continues to build in Friday and over the weekend. This will limit storms to mainly the high terrain. Only spot storms will develop, at best, across the lower terrain. With drier air in place, temperatures will soar across New Mexico. Afternoon highs will push near 100° in Albuquerque, and exceed the century mark across the south and west into early next week.
