Remnants of Hurricane Alex may impact local weather Friday and Saturday

-A A +A
By The Staff

The following special weather statement was issued by the National Weather Service late Thursday afternoon...

SOME MOISTURE FROM HURRICANE ALEX MAY IMPACT PORTIONS OF NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...

WHILE PRECIPITATION IN THE EASTERN PLAINS THIS MORNING WAS LIKELY ASSOCIATED WITH A WEAK DISTURBANCE WHICH TRACKED WESTWARD INTO THE REGION... SHOWERS AND STORMS DEVELOPED OVER MOST OF THE HIGHER TERRAIN THIS AFTERNOON. WINDS ALOFT HAVE BECOME SOUTHERLY... ALLOWING FOR AN INCREASE IN MOISTURE FROM THE SOUTH.

ALTHOUGH MAINLY MIDDLE AND HIGH LEVEL MOISTURE FROM ALEX WILL CIRCULATE NORTH INTO SOUTH CENTRAL... SOUTHEAST AND EAST CENTRAL NEW MEXICO... THE MAIN CIRCULATION CENTER OF ALEX WILL REMAIN WELL SOUTH OF THE STATE. HOWEVER... AN UPPER LEVEL LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE WEST SATURDAY MAY INTERACT WITH THIS INCREASED MOISTURE... RESULTING IN POTENTIAL FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS... AND MINOR FLOODING... NOT ONLY ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST THIRD... BUT ALONG AND WEST OF THE CENTRAL MOUNTAIN CHAIN... INCLUDING THE RIO GRANDE VALLEY.

AS THE UPPER LEVEL SYSTEM EXITS THE STATE... DRIER WEATHER IS FORECAST FOR THE WEST ON SUNDAY AND OVER ALL OF NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO ON THE FOURTH OF JULY.
