Weather Summary for Northern and Central NM
National Weather Service Albuquerque NM
544 PM MDT TUE MAY 31 2016

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms occurred today
across central and eastern areas, with drier, isolated activity
in the west. Most areas along and east of the central mountain
chain saw strong to severe storms with periods of heavy rain,
frequent cloud to ground lightning, gusty winds and hail. Temps
cooled rapidly in the east with further storm development as the
back door front pushed westward. Highs were cooler than previous,
especially in the east, with readings in the 60s across the
northeast Highlands to 70s, low 80s elsewhere. Gap winds will
favor areas along the Central Mountains tonight as storms continue
east of the mountains. Once again, some storms could range from
strong to severe with mostly cloudy skies central and east to
lesser coverage in the west. Lows will be in the 40s and 50s.

Wednesday will be cooler with more isolated to scattered activity
central and west, with even lesser activity Thursday. More
seasonal conditions will return the latter half of the week into
the weekend.
