Kristen’s Thursday Morning Forecast

Stretch of wet weather heading into the weekend...

THURSDAY: With a little help from Tropical Storm Kevin, moisture streaming north into southern New Mexico will help give way to scattered to widespread showers and storms over a good portion of western and central NM. The biggest concern with any developed storm will be heavy rain causing localized flooding, as well as gusty winds and frequent lightning. High temperatures will be noticeably cooler for areas along and west of Interstate-25 – expect western and central NM to top out in the 70s and 80s while the Eastern Plains still reaches for the 90s.

FRIDAY: Increasing moisture will keep widespread showers and storms alive across a good portion of the state. Heavy rain is possible over western and central NM – be sure to watch low-lying areas closely as localized flooding is likely under strong showers. Afternoon highs will stay below average for another day with 70s & 80s for most – 90s found further east.
