A hazardous weather outlook has been issued for the remainder of the week.


Hazardous weather outlook is for portions of north and central New Mexico.

Day One...Today and Tonight

Heavy rainfall this afternoon and evening over portions of the West Central Mountains and Highlands and Northwest Highlands to including the I-40 and U.S. Highway 550 corridors is possible, where localized areas of flash flooding may occur. Recharged moisture combining with

daytime heating will favor storm development over the western and northern high terrain. Storm motions will be rather flow, allowing heavy rain producing storms to cause localized flash flooding.

Meanwhile, shower and storm activity will also continue over portions of the eastern plains. Areas that saw recent heavy rainfall will also be prone to flash flooding concerns today where strong storms pass over.

Days Two Through SevenTuesday through Sunday

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected each afternoon through the week, favoring the high terrain before moving over adjacent valley locations. Moderate to heavy rainfall will cause

localized flash flooding concerns, especially for recent burn scar areas. Isolated locations may receive up to 2 to 4 inches of rainfall in one days activity from the heaviest rainfall. A few

storms may also produce small hail and wind gusts of 50 mph.

Spotter Information Statement…

Spotters are encouraged to report rainfall amounts and any flooding through the National Weather Service Albuquerque web site at weather.gov/abq or by calling 1.888.386.7637.
