ALBUQUERQUE — Forecasters with the National Weather Service in Albuquerque are warning that the weekend will be very wet.

They said Friday that a deep plume of moisture will shift north into New Mexico through Sunday and lead to a monsoon “burst” pattern.

The combination of abundant moisture, slow-moving storm and elevated soil moisture will increase the potential for flash flooding Saturday and Sunday.

Widespread rainfall amounts from a half-inch to an inch are likely with locally higher amounts of 2 inches.

The heaviest rainfall is expected to hit the western half of the state, and the greatest risk for thunderstorms with flash flooding will occur from early afternoon into the evening hours each day.
