Scattered storms once again developed Monday across New Mexico. These storms have been dropping heavy rain over burn scar areas, prompting Flash Flood Warnings. Storms are ending Monday night and we will wake up to dry conditions Tuesday morning.
Widespread showers and thunderstorms will develop Tuesday afternoon. Storms will fire across the mountain peaks and then slowly move into the lower elevations by late afternoon and evening. Storms will once again be slow movers, causing a threat of flash flooding. The highest threat will be overburn scar areas and eastern New Mexico where we have seen heavy rain over the last couple of weeks.
Another round of afternoon storms returns Wednesday afternoon, but southwest parts of the state will begin to dry out. Storms will be moving faster Wednesday afternoon as a couple could turn strong in eastern New Mexico. Southwesterly winds continue to draw in drier air into the state though, pushing rain chances farther northeast through the week. By Thursday, most areas will be dry, with the exception of far northern and northern eastern New Mexico. Warmer weather will also return with the drier air.
