More Storms Ahead…

July 25th, 2013 at 10:52 pm by under Weather

Strong thunderstorms developed late tonight north of the Albuquerque metro area as well is in eastern sections of the state. Those storms pushed east winds in throughout the city leading to an exciting overnight weather set up. We saw strong thunderstorms roll through the Santa Fe metro area toward the Albuquerque area as well. The chance for more storms will continue Friday as well.

A heightened chance of showers remains Friday afternoon and Saturday before more dry air starts to push into New Mexico. That drier air should give us a break from the daily rounds of storms at the beginning of next week. Highs will top out in the high 80′s and low 90s entering the beginning of the next work week.

    Mark, are you familiar with the “Superbolt” of lightning? I live in the North valley and last night, somewhere between 11:30 and 1:30, I stepped outside to view some of that wild lightning storm, and as I stepped around the corner of my apartment a flash went off so bright it blinded me for a second, I thought the building next door had been hit. I waited for the crash because I have been next to lightning strikes before but it took several seconds before the roar of thunder came through. Felt like it shook the whole planet. I was wondering if anyone recorded this?

      I just went back to look at footage I was taking… that big lightning strike was just after 2:am.

      Hi Drew,

      Shortly after the power came on for us, around 4:15 a.m., we heard a tremendously loud “boom”! I assumed it was thunder but now wonder if it had to do with our part of the city regaining power? It was probably a minute or two after our power was restored. Wild! I think I also saw/heard what you described. I’ll tell ya though, I sure had no trouble heading to bed and sleeping with no power! Talk about simplifying one’s life!
