Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
851 PM MDT Fri Jun 23 2017

A back door cold front pushing south over the eastern plains and
west toward the continental divide today, helped to kick off isolated
showers and thunderstorms along the central mountain chain and over
the eastern plains this afternoon. Some of the storms were severe
with large hail and strong gusty winds. One thunderstorm over San
Miguel county produced golf ball size hail and a wind gust estimated
between 45 to 50 mph. Another thunderstorm northeast of Bonito lake
produced half inch hail. As the front passed over the central mountain
chain early this evening, mountain passes and west facing canyons
saw strong gusty winds up to the 40 to 45 mph range. Afternoon high
temperatures today generally ranged from the mid 60s to 80s over the
northeast plains and over higher terrain to the 90s to mid 100s over
lower terrain elsewhere.

There is a continued chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms
developing this evening and through the overnight hours mainly from
the central mountain chain to the eastern plains. Gusty winds through
mountain passes and over west facing canyons of the central mountain
chain will continue this evening, then gradually diminish during the
early morning hours and end just after sunrise on Saturday. Overnight
low temperatures tonight will generally range from the lower 40s to
upper 50s over the northeast plains and over higher terrain to the
upper 50s to upper 60s over lower terrain. Saturday will become partly
cloudy by afternoon with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing.
