731 AM MDT FRI SEP 30 2016
Afternoon showers and storms yesterday pushed into the Rio Grande
Valley with areas around Albuquerque reporting between 0.02 to
0.20 inches. Remnant showers continued over south central New
Mexico and are dying down this morning. Persistent cloud cover and
area showers kept Gallup quite cool yesterday, setting a record
low high temperature of 59. Low level moisture has also produced
low clouds over portions of western New Mexico, with fog beginning
to burn off at Gallup.
Afternoon showers and storms will focus over western and central
New Mexico today. Highs will range from the 60s and 70s in the
mountains to upper 70s and low 80s at lower elevations.
An upper level low is diving down the Pacific coast, with drier
air pushing in from the west over New Mexico. This will lower rain
chances for the weekend.
