Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
831 PM MDT Mon Jul 24 2017

Even with the damping effect of an upper level high pressure area
centered over New Mexico, daytime heating combined with abundant
moisture in place and orographics ignited another round of scattered
to numerous showers and thunderstorms over central and western parts
of the state today, with more isolated activity over the east. Heavy
rainfall, in excess of half an inch, fell at several locations and
over an inch of rainfall was reported with thunderstorms near Ramah.
The risk of flash flooding will remain a threat until convection
diminishes later this evening. High temperatures this afternoon
generally ranged from the mid 60s to lower 80s over higher terrain
to the mid 80s to upper 90s over lower terrain.

Convective activity will continue to diminish after midnight but
isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the
overnight hours. Low temperatures tonight will generally range from
the mid 40s to upper 50s over higher terrain and over the upper Rio
Grande river valley and the Raton and Estancia basins to the upper
50s to lower 70s over lower terrain elsewhere. Another round of
scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to
develop over the state on Tuesday. Heavy rainfall with thunderstorms
is again possible, along with a risk of flash flooding.
