ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Weather officials say New Mexico may continue to get peppered with extreme weather on a weekend that has already seen rain, hail and even tornadoes.
In the past two days, northern and eastern parts of the state have been getting caught in extreme weather.
Residents on Saturday afternoon reported heavy rain and pea-sized hail falling on downtown Santa Fe. The National Weather Service says there could be more hail and thunder and lightning on Sunday, just east of the city.
Meanwhile, forecasters say there is a chance of showers and thunderstorms in Albuquerque.
Authorities in Clovis reported Friday that two tornadoes briefly touched down. Meteorologists say there was a 78 mph wind gust and three-quarter of an inch of rain.
But no injuries or significant damage were reported.
