Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
622 PM MDT Fri Sep 22 2017

Moisture increased over the state today and resulted in more
clouds and winds, which helped to keep temperatures a few degrees
lower than yesterday for most locales. Highs were generally below
normal west and above normal central and east. Roswell set a daily
record high of 97 degrees. The previous record was 96 set in 2005
and 2000. Highs generally ranged from the 60s to 70s mountains
and west, with 80s to upper 90s lowlands and east.

A wet forecast is shaping up for much of central and especially
eastern New Mexico over the weekend. Showers and storms are
expected to break out overnight into early Saturday, then organize
into and line and move slowly east across the Eastern Plains while
producing heavy rain. Rainfall amounts between tonight and early
Sunday morning across the Eastern Plains will generally range from
1 to 3 inches. A cooler and drier airmass will move in on Sunday,
but the forecast will turn wetter again going into the middle of
next week as a backdoor front and an upper level trough of low
pressure impact the state.
