Kristen’s Thursday Morning Forecast

Video Forecast

Easterly winds higher up in the atmosphere will bring a significant increase in moisture.. resulting in meaningful rain chances to finish the week. Spotty to scattered storms and showers are likely to develop over western, northern and central NM on Thursday afternoon, generally moving east to west. This increase in moisture will not only give us a shot at rain, it’ll also take the edge off the heat. Expect highs to stay beneath the 100° mark and stick to the 80s and 90s through this weekend. Breezy conditions out of the east (15-20mph) are also to be expected in the Rio Grande Valley Thursday afternoon.

FLASH FLOOD WATCH in effect for portions of the Northern Mountains (Sangre de Cristo & Jemez Mountains) on Thursday — noon to evening. High flooding risk for canyons, burn scars and low lying areas.

More afternoon storms are expected Friday afternoon, primarily favoring the higher terrain. Afternoon highs will continue to fall with the Albuquerque-metro area likely to stay in the upper 80s.

On and off storms will continue this weekend — keep the umbrella within arms reach!
