Kristen’s Thursday Morning Forecast

Stormy finish to the work week

THURSDAY: Morning showers and weak thunderstorms continue to develop over western NM – pushing northeast across the state. As Wednesday’s high pressure starts to scoot off to the east, more moisture will stream in from the south and give way to numerous showers and storms this afternoon. A MARGINAL RISK has been posted for a solid portion of the state – stretching from Durango southeast towards Tatum. Main threats with any developed storm: heavy rain, localized flooding, frequent lightning, hail & damaging wind gusts.

FRIDAY: Storms and showers will continue to fire on Friday calling for a high risk of flooding in low-lying areas. Afternoon temperature will continue to slide upwards – most areas of the state warming into the 70s and 80s (90s expected for far southern NM).

WEEKEND: As high pressure begins its northwesterly trek back into the state, storm chances will slowly start to decline. Scattered storms are still likely on Saturday, however, storms will gradually start to disappear as we head into the later end of the weekend and start of the work week.
