Heavy rains have shattered records and flooded homes in Roswell.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Forecasters says New Mexico’s weather will be wet, wet and more wet on Friday and into the weekend, with the possibility of flash flooding Friday afternoon and evening due to a very moist air mass remaining over the state.

The National Weather Service says the risk of flash flooding on Friday will be greatest near and west of the central mountain chain.

The forecasters also predict heavy rain in the southern mountains and along the lower Rio Grande on Saturday, then further west along the Arizona border on Sunday and Monday.

The latest five-day total precipitation forecast calls for an additional 1-3 inches for many areas of the western two-thirds of New Mexico with locally higher amounts up to near five inches possible through Sunday night.
