Kristen’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

Blanca's moisture lingers for another day

WEDNESDAY: Showers continue to linger over northern NM this afternoon, pushing east-northeast across the state. Some storms are packing moderate to heavy rain over the Northwest Plateau – a FLOOD ADVISORY is in effect for Sandoval, Rio Arriba, McKinley and San Juan County until 12:30PM; main threat: heavy rain causing flooding in low-lying areas and arroyos. A few pop up showers are also making their way east over the Southeastern Plains this afternoon – these showers will push east through the day. The southwest corner of the state will clear out as drier air works its way in from the west. And despite the soggy start, central New Mexico (including the ABQ-metro area) can also expect drier conditions and mostly sunny skies through the afternoon hours. High temperatures will be at or just above what was felt Tuesday afternoon.

THURSDAY: Another round of storms is likely over the far north and northwest parts of the state while the rest of New Mexico will see more sunshine. Isolated storms will also be possible over central and eastern NM, although, coverage will be spotty. Afternoon temps will be near normal for majority of the state.

FRIDAY & SATURDAY: Afternoon temps will be slightly below normal for this time of year – leaving most of the state still in the 70s and 80s. A storm system moving in from the west will likely give way to another round of showers and storms heading into the weekend. We will be sure to update you on the timing, intensity and locations of these expected storms once we get a bit closer to the weekend.
