ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The National Weather Service in Albuquerque issued a flood advisory Wednesday evening for most of Bernalillo County.
The advisory is in effect until 7:45 p.m. and warns flooding is likely in high risk areas like arroyos and small streams, according to the Weather Service.
Some areas in the county had reported up to a fourth of an inch of rain before 6:30 p.m., and NWS meteorologist Randall Hergert said parts of the Northeast Heights could see around three-fourths of an inch.
He called the monsoon storm “garden variety” and said it could bring lightning, light hail, and wind.
The advisory covers Northeast Albuquerque, Corrales, Los Ranchos De Albuquerque, Sandia Heights and the North Valley.
The storm was moving south toward the Manzano Mountains just after 6:45 p.m., but Hergert said it could act “squirrely” or “erratic,” and change direction.
“Some places are going to get more than others” he said.
