ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – New Mexico is getting a reprieve from severe storms and heavy rain thanks to a dry system coming in from the west.
The National Weather Service said Tuesday the potent dry intrusion will limit storm chances for at least a couple of days.
That means the soil will have two days to dry up as more storms move in later in the week.
The dry weather comes after the state was pounded by heavy rains last week and Monday sparking damaging floods.
Forecaster says parts of the state will still see isolated thunderstorms.
