ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A storm system passing to our north continued to draw moisture up across the state. The mixture of that moisture along with the heat of the day produced a pretty good crop of thunderstorms today. We had heavy rain for a while in Valencia County and in Socorro County as well. There was even flooding in Silver City.
Tomorrow will represent a welcome drying trend across a good portion of New Mexico. Even though it hasn’t been that wet in the Albuquerque area we will dry out as well. Look for showers to be mainly focused over mountain areas of the state. High-pressure will continue to develop Wednesday and Thursday walking out widespread storms.
It gets interesting again over the weekend. A West Coast trough will push toward New Mexico. This trough could well pack more showers and yes even the possibility of some high mountain snow over southwestern Colorado. Stay tuned it could get interesting and start to feel a bit more like fall by Sunday.
