Saturday Evening Forecast

KOB 4 Meteorologist Brandon Richards shows you the rain chances for parts of New Mexico Saturday evening.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – A significant flash flood threat is expected to begin Sunday afternoon across northeast and east central New Mexico.

That’s when a higher moisture behind a backdoor front, combined with a disturbance moving in from the Southwest, will set the stage for widespread showers and storms along and east of the central mountain chain.

Considerable to destructive burn scar flash flooding is becoming more likely across the Hermit’s Peak/Calf Canyon Sunday afternoon through Sunday night.
