... 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: Central Highlands, eastern Lincoln County,
Estancia valley, lower Rio Grande Valley, middle Rio Grande
Valley including the Albuquerque Metro area, Sandia and Manzano
Mountains, south Central Highlands, south central mountains,
southwest Chaves County, upper Tularosa Valley, west Central
Highlands, west central mountains and west Central Plateau.

* Through late tonight

* an abrupt surge of subtropical moisture is expected into much of
western and central New Mexico this evening and tonight. This
will lead to scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms,
many of which will be capable of producing locally heavy
rainfall.

* High rainfall rates over short durations will likely produce
excessive runoff in many areas, and this could lead to flash
flooding in localized areas. Repeated movement of storms over the
same areas will escalate the flash flooding threat. Wildfire burn
scars will be especially susceptible to flash flooding.

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.
