THURSDAY: Deep moisture streaming north over the state will help trigger another round of scattered to widespread storms over western and central NM – more isolated coverage expected further east. A weak front moving in over the northeast will help keep rain chances alive this afternoon through Friday. Main threat with any developed storm will be heavy rain causing localized flooding. Be very cautious of your surroundings if in the vicinity of canyons, arroyos, burn scars, etc. Afternoon temperatures will be near to just shy of seasonal average in most areas.
FRIDAY: More scattered to widespread rain is expected to favor central, northern and western NM. Flooding will continue to be of top concern as heavy showers move slowly over already water-logged areas. Afternoon temperatures will top out in the 70s, 80s and 90s across the state.
WEEKEND: Afternoon storm coverage will begin to thin, although, not go away completely. On and off storms will favor northwest NM and the higher terrain with more spotty coverage elsewhere. We’ll kick off our next warming trend Saturday with the Albuquerque-metro area climbing back into the 90s for the weekend.
