... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through late tonight...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of north and central New Mexico... including the
following areas... Albuquerque Metro area... Central Highlands...
east slopes Sangre de Cristo Mountains... eastern Lincoln County...
Estancia valley... far northeast Highlands... Guadalupe County...
Jemez Mountains... lower Chama River Valley... lower Rio Grande
Valley... northeast Highlands... northern Sangre de Cristo
Mountains above 9500 feet/Red River... northwest Highlands...
Raton ridge/Johnson Mesa... San Francisco River Valley... San Juan

south Central Highlands... south central mountains... southern
Sangre de Cristo Mountains above 9500 feet... Southwest
Mountains... upper Rio Grande Valley... upper Tularosa Valley...
west Central Highlands... west central mountains and west slopes
Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

* Through late tonight

* abundant moisture is in place over much of northern and central
New Mexico... and a weak disturbance aloft will be entering
northern parts of the state later today. In addition... storms
are expected to move very slowly today and tonight... and this
scenario will lead to a heightened risk for flash flooding. With
abundant moisture in place some of the stronger storms will
likely produce torrential downpours with rain at rates near 1
inch in just a half hour.

* Locations where the ground is already saturated from recent
rainfall will be favored for flash flooding. Other vulnerable
locations will include steep terrain... urban areas and burn
scars. Keep a watchful eye on arroyos and small streams... and
stay out of flooded low water crossings. Monitor the latest
forecasts closely and be prepared to take immediate action if a
warning or advisory is issued.

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.
