Flooding likely as rainfall ramps up

Special weather update from Mark Ronchetti

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – As we continue to see the remnants of Odile head into New Mexico, the heavier rains are now starting to take hold across the south-central portions of the state. The result is likely to be some flooding across a wide area.

As the Tropical Storm Odile breaks up as it moves through New Mexico Thursday, places like Socorro and Reserve, even up into Albuquerque, will crank up the rainfall numbers.

Storm Targets:

Southern New Mexico
  • Big rain through Thursday
  • Biggest flooding danger yet to come
  • More heavy rain on top of soaked soil
  • 2 – 5 + more inches possible
Central New Mexico
(to include Albuquerque)
  • Scattered light rain Wednesday
  • Heavier rain likely through the night Wednesday
  • Flooding concern into early Friday
  • 1+ more inches possible
Southern CO & Northern NM
  • Mtns & NE favored for heaviest rain
  • Heaviest rain late Thursday & Friday
  • Flooding possible in burn scars
  • 1– 2 more inches possible
