This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of north and central
New Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Heavy rainfall this afternoon and evening over portions of the West
Central Mountains and Highlands and Northwest Highlands to including
the I-40 and U.S. Highway 550 corridors is possible, where localized
areas of flash flooding may occur. Recharged moisture combining with
daytime heating will favor storm development over the western and
northern high terrain. Storm motions will be rather flow, allowing
heavy rain producing storms to cause localized flash flooding.

Meanwhile, shower and storm activity will also continue over portions
of the eastern plains. Areas that saw recent heavy rainfall will
also be prone to flash flooding concerns today where strong storms
pass over.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected each afternoon
through the week, favoring the high terrain before moving over
adjacent valley locations. Moderate to heavy rainfall will cause
localized flash flooding concerns, especially for recent burn scar
areas. Isolated locations may receive up to 2 to 4 inches of
rainfall in one days activity from the heaviest rainfall. A few
storms may also produce small hail and wind gusts of 50 mph.


Spotters are encouraged to report rainfall amounts and any flooding
through the National Weather Service Albuquerque web site at or by calling 1.888.386.7637.
