439 am MDT Mon Sep 22 2014

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of north and central New Mexico... including the
following areas... Central Highlands... Chaves County plains...
Curry County... De Baca County... eastern Lincoln County...
Guadalupe County... lower Rio Grande Valley... Quay County...
Roosevelt County... San Francisco River Valley... south Central
Highlands... south central mountains... southwest Chaves County...
Southwest Mountains and upper Tularosa Valley.

* Through this evening

* an upper level low pressure trough over the eastern Great Basin
early this morning will track through the central rockies later
today. As it advances eastward... moist low level southeast
through south winds and a continued tap of late season monsoon
moisture will persist. The combination of these features will
keep showers and thunderstorms active through this evening...
and therefore the potential of heavy rainfall over the watch
area.

* Locations which have received heavy rainfall recently will be
most at risk of flash flooding. Other vulnerable locations
include poor drainage areas... steep terrain and burn scars such
as the Little Bear and Whitewater Baldy. Keep a watchful eye on
small streams and arroyos... and avoid flooded low water
crossings.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead to
flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.
Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action should flash
flood warnings be issued.
