WEATHER SUMMARY FOR NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NM
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
600 PM MDT FRI AUG 28 2015

ANOTHER AFTERNOON OF ISOLATED TO SCATTERED STORMS OCCURRED ACROSS
MUCH OF THE STATE EXCEPT THE NORTHWEST. THE FOCUS AREA OF
DEVELOPMENT WAS ALONG THE CENTRAL MOUNTAIN CHAIN AS THE BACK DOOR
COLD FRONT STALLED EAST OF THE MOUNTAIN CHAIN THEN CONTINUED
SOUTH AND WEST AS THE DAY PROGRESSED. STORM MOTIONS WERE SOUTHWARD
FROM 10 TO 20 MPH. HEAVY DOWNPOURS...OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT CLOUD
TO GROUND LIGHTNING WITH GUSTY AND ERRATIC WINDS OCCURRED WITH
STRONGER STORMS. MULTIPLE OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES WILL AID FURTHER
STORM DEVELOPMENT TOWARD THE EVENING. DAYTIME HIGHS WERE IN THE
70S ACROSS THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS TO 80S MID 90S ELSEWHERE.

EXPECT A BRIEF PERIOD OF EAST CANYON WINDS WITHIN THE CENTRAL RIO
GRANDE VALLEY THIS EVENING AS THE FRONT PASSES THROUGH...INCREASING
MOISTURE LEVELS TOWARD THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE OVERNIGHT. LOWS WILL
BE IN THE 50S AND 60S.

CENTRAL AND WESTERN AREAS WILL CONTINUE TO FAVOR STORM ACTIVITY
OVER THE WEEKEND...WITH GREATER FAVOR OVER THE SOUTHWEST
MOUNTAINS BECAUSE OF HIGHER PRECIP CHANCES. LITTLE ACTIVITY IS
EXPECTED IN THE EAST. EXPECT NEAR NORMAL TEMPS CENTRAL AND WEST
TO ABOVE NORMAL IN THE EAST.
