Kristen’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

More storms for the Plains... drier out west...

WEDNESDAY: Storms and showers are re-developing over the Southeastern Plains at the noon hour – likely to expand in coverage and intensity throughout the remainder of the day. Areas along and east of the Central Mountains (including the Sangre de Cristo & Jemez Mountains) are favored for afternoon rain chances. Spot storms are still possible over the far southwestern corner, southern Colorado and Albuquerque-metro area, although, coverage will be limited. Main threats: heavy rain / flash flooding, gusty winds, frequent lightning and hail. Afternoon temperatures will be similar to what was felt Tuesday with most of the state topping out in the 70s and 80s.

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH is in effect beginning 3PM Wednesday through 6AM Thursday for portions of the far Eastern Plains, including Curry, Harding, Quay, Roosevelt and Union County.
