Kristen’s Friday Morning Forecast

Wet finish to July

FRIDAY: Light to moderate showers continue to linger over southwest and east-central NM through the early morning hours. More storms and showers are expected to fire by late afternoon as a good amount of moisture stays in place. Northern and western portions of the state will be favored for some of the stronger storms and showers, however, it is still possible to pick up a few stray storms over south-central and southeast NM (coverage will be limited). Recent rain and strong storms will combine to heighten the flooding risk – particularly within the higher terrain and burn scars.

SATURDAY: A few overnight showers are likely to stick around through the early morning hours before sunshine starts to fill in by late morning / early afternoon. Clouds will build by late day, setting the stage for another round of afternoon storms. Spotty to scattered storms will develop over northern and western NM while high pressure continues to edge in over the southeast.
