NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – The high moisture continues for our 4th of July weekend. This will lead to more storms each afternoon from now through Tuesday. That means have a plan B for any outdoor activities for the holiday. We’ll see these storms begin over the northern mountains and move southward each afternoon. They’ll peak over southern New Mexico, where flash flooding is still a concern. We could see another 1-3″ of isolated rainfall across this part.
