ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – We are in for a wild ride across most of New Mexico for the next 24 hours. The remnants of hurricane Odile are now entering the state. Heavy rain continues to fall across the southwest. Many areas of Grant, Sierra and Hidalgo Counties have picked up 3 inches of rain already. Now the heaviest rain is working its way in. This is likely to lead to widespread flooding. Throughout the night and into tomorrow the chance for heavy rain shifts in the central sections of the state. The Albuquerque area will see a ramp-up in storms on Thursday lasting into Friday morning.
Flood prone areas like Martinez town could be at risk here in the Albuquerque area of flooding as well. A lot of the focus for the flooding will depend on the track of the storm. If the track leads close to the metro area which is very possible we need to be vigilant when flood warnings are issued.
