Big Time Rain!July 24th, 2013 at 3:27 pm by Mark Ronchetti under Weather
At this hour heavy rain is advancing toward the Albuquerque metro area from the south. The bands of storms and thunderstorms will continue to fill in the Rio Grande Valley throughout the rest of the evening. The biggest risk from the storms is the possibility of flooding in many areas of the central portion of the state. Socorro County is already experiencing flooding this afternoon and could see more throughout the evening.
The chance for storms will continue into the overnight hours as well. A weather disturbance sliding up from the South will fuel the storms as we head into Thursday morning. Thursday afternoon’s crop of storm still looks very promising as well with a lot of moisture hanging over the state. We will slowly start to dry out by Friday and into the weekend.
