Scattered storms this evening, more mountain flash flooding

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – It’s another stormy evening for the higher terrain, especially over the northern mountains. We have more mountain flash flooding for the burn scars through 8:30 p.m. They’ve already collected 0.50″ of rainfall and more to come this evening as more storms develop. Showers will eventually subside later tonight as skies turn partly to mostly cloudy. So if you had any plans for the 4th, you may want to reschedule especially in the mountains camping or hiking. If you’re just planning on the outdoor backyard barbecue, you should have limited issues in the valleys.

More rounds of scattered storms this weekend

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – Happy Independence Day weekend! If you have any outdoor plans in store this weekend, pack that umbrella or even alternative plans with more storms in the forecast. We’ll see even more moisture than Friday which will equal more widespread storms, particularly over the higher spots north and west of Albuquerque. Localized flash flooding will be our main concern over the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo mountains, especially over the burn scars. Expect scattered storms across the northeast as well, but the southeast corner stays dry and hot this weekend. High temperatures will reach near 90° for the ABQ metro area, upper 90s for Roswell, and only into the lower 80s for Santa Fe.
