National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
1103 AM MDT Sat Sep 23 2017

Moisture continues to increase over the Land of Enchantment in
southwest flow ahead of an upper level low pressure area located
over the Great Basin. Skies were partly to mostly cloudy during
the overnight hours with scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms over the north and over central and eastern parts
of the state. Moderate to heavy rainfall was reported over some
areas with these storms along with strong gusty winds. Overnight
low temperatures generally ranged from the 40s to lower 50s over
higher terrain and over the upper Rio Grande river valley and over
the Raton and Estancia basins to the mid 50s to 60s over lower
terrain elsewhere.

A wet forecast is shaping up for much of the region today, especially
over central and eastern parts of the state. Scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop today becoming
more widespread over the eastern plains this afternoon and evening.
Heavy downpours and strong gusty winds are possible. Heavier rainfall
amounts will favor the eastern plains through tonight with anywhere
from one to three inches accumulation possible, though some spots may
see up to 5 inches of total rainfall. Flash flooding is also a concern
over the eastern plains with road closures possible. Afternoon high
temperatures today will generally range from the 50s to mid 60s over
higher terrain to the upper 60s to lower 80s over lower terrain.
