NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Severe weather affecting parts of New Mexico Monday.
Storms are already developing this afternoon across central and northern New Mexico as an upper-level storm system spins to the northwest. More storms will develop across northeast and east-central New Mexico into the afternoon, where there is a better chance for severe storms. Large hail and damaging winds are the biggest concerns, but an isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.
