Weather services warns of possible heavy rain in northwestern NM from former Hurricane Blanca


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — The National Weather Service says heavy rain is possible in central and western parts of the state as the remnants of Hurricane Blanca move east.

The weather service on Tuesday afternoon issued a flash flood watch for much of northwest New Mexico but warned that heavy rain in other areas also could trigger flooding. Mountainous areas of northern and western New Mexico will see the most rain with as much as two inches possible.

Between a half-inch and one inch of rain is expected to fall north and west of Albuquerque through Wednesday evening. Lingering showers are possible after that.
