WEATHER SUMMARY FOR NORTHERN AND CENTRAL NM
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE ALBUQUERQUE NM
629 PM MDT FRI APR 24 2015

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS LITTERED THE LANDSCAPE ACROSS
WESTERN AND CENTRAL NEW MEXICO THROUGH THE DAY TODAY. MOST STORMS
PRODUCED LITTLE TO NO RAIN WHILE ENHANCING THE SYNOPTIC WESTERLY
WINDS. GUSTS BETWEEN 45 MPH AND 62 MPH ACROSS PARTS OF EASTERN AND
CENTRAL NEW MEXICO WERE GENERALLY THE RESULT OF THIS ENHANCEMENT.
THE STRONGER STORMS DID PRODUCE WETTING RAINS ALONG WITH SMALL
HAIL. ALBUQUERQUE ENDED UP SEEING TWO ROUNDS OF PEA SIZE TO HALF
INCH SIZE HAIL THANKS TO TWO SEPARATE STORMS THAT WENT THROUGH THE
METRO. THE HIGHEST RAINFALL ACCUMULATIONS WERE MAINLY OVER THE
SOUTH CENTRAL MOUNTAINS...WHERE OVER AN INCH OF RAIN WAS MEASURED
AND 5 INCHES OF SNOW FELL ON SIERRA BLANCA THIS MORNING. SOME OF
THE NOTABLE HIGH TEMPERATURES TODAY INCLUDE 58 DEGREES IN
GALLUP...60 DEGREES IN SANTA FE...AND 77 DEGREES IN ROSWELL.

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BECOME MORE ISOLATED THIS
EVENING...AND EVENTUALLY DISSIPATE A FEW HOURS AFTER SUNSET. ANY
RESIDUAL SHOWER ACTIVITY WILL PRIMARILY BE OVER THE NORTHERN
MOUNTAINS. OVERNIGHT LOW TEMPERATURES WILL RANGE FROM THE MID 20S
AND 30S ACROSS THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS TO THE MID AND UPPER 40S
ACROSS THE EASTERN PLAINS.
