Remnants of Odile still a concern for Southern NM

Mark Ronchetti weather report
Although rain and storms have missed the metro area, southern NM is still bracing for flooding.

What a bust the storm turned out to be if you’re in the Albuquerque metro area. We talked about this yesterday on many of our shows and it actually panned out today. I have to admit that I thought the storm rolling through Albuquerque during the day but it didn’t stay to the south. Most forecast models had the storm curling up in to central portions of the state which would have put Albuquerque in a good position to get meaningful rain. One model, the Canadian, had the storm staying south and that’s the route it took.

Over the next 24 hours will continue to see the remnants of a deal slide through eastern New Mexico providing more rain. Some areas could end up with an inch and a half to 2 inches of additional rain.

Scattered storms remain a possibility through the weekend but nothing too widespread. Here’s a look at the additional rain accumulation possibilities through Sunday. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
