Rain Update – Friday 11:30amSeptember 13th, 2013 at 11:35 am by John Smith under Weather
Rain continues across much of central New Mexico. Showers extend from the Northern Mountains, into the East Mountains communities, and between I-25 and the Sacramento Mountains. Flash Flood Watches remain in effect across much of west extending into the northeast. Flood Warnings are currently up for those counties you see in dark green below.
The good news is that the southeast is starting to dry out. However, flood warnings will continue as river levels continue to rise over the next couple of days.
Over the weekend, a drying trend will commence, but it will be a slow process. There will be a decent round of scattered showers for the western two thirds of the state Saturday, but the widespread activity will start to break up. On Sunday, most of the state continues to dry, expect the northeast. That part of the state will get a boost from a back door cold front for scattered storms. By Monday afternoon, the front will wash out, and the storm crop will be much leaner. Much of next week will feature more sunshine and warmer temps!
The images below show model predictions for showers over the weekend and early next week.
