Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
803 PM MDT Fri Jul 21 2017

Circulation around the western periphery of an upper level high
pressure area centered near the Ozark plateau has spread monsoon
moisture northward into New Mexico. This moisture combined with
afternoon heating help produce scattered to numerous showers and
thunderstorms today, mainly over western and central parts of New
Mexico. Rainfall amounts were generally light to moderate but a
few stations reported heavy rainfall with thunderstorms. In areas
of heavy rainfall, the risk of flash flooding will remain a threat
until convection diminishes this evening. High temperatures this
afternoon generally ranged from the 60s to lower 80s over higher
terrain to the mid 80s to lower 100s over lower terrain.

Isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the
overnight hours over western and north central parts of the state.
Overnight lows will range from the mid 40s to mid 50s over higher
terrain and over the upper Rio Grande river valley and the Raton
and Estancia basins to the mid 50s to lower 70s over lower terrain
elsewhere. Monsoon moisture will continue to spread northward into
the region on Saturday. Another round of scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop over western and
central parts of the state with isolated showers and thunderstorms
possible over eastern areas. The risk for flash flooding will
again accompany stronger storms with heavy rainfall.
