NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Heat continues to dominate the state as we head through Friday afternoon and evening. However, isolated shower chances return across the southern and eastern portions of the state this evening. More moisture will continue to move into the state from the Gulf of Mexico as we head into the weekend, aiding in the potential for scattered showers on Saturday. This will increase the potential for flash flooding, especially for burn scar locations.
