Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 4:09 PM MDT on July 30, 2015

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

* Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
southeastern Bernalillo County in central New Mexico...
Torrance County in central New Mexico...

* until 600 PM MDT

* at 408 PM MDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
heavy rain due to slow moving thunderstorms stretching from the
Manzano and southern Sandia Mountains east to Clines Corners... and
south toward Corona. Rainfall accumulations between 2 to 3 inches
have been seen in south central Guadalupe County... with between
half an inch to 1 inch for the rest of the County. The heaviest
rainfall will focus over the mountains and central to eastern
portions of Guadalupe County... where between 1 to 2 inches of
additional rainfall is possible. Expect ditches... arroyos... and
other low lying areas to begin seeing ponding of water and even
some rushing water... which may cause low water crossing issues for
roadways.

* Locations impacted include...
Moriarty... Estancia... Mountainair... Willard... Encino... Clines
Corners... Escabosa... McIntosh... Chilili and Gran Quivira.

This includes the following highways...
Interstate 40 between mile markers 191 and 233.
Highway 285 between mile markers 223 and 251.

Other locations affected include the following locations
Capilla Peak campground... Fourth of July campground... New Canyon
campground... Red Canyon campground... Tajique campground... Pine
Shadows trailhead... and Pine Flat picnic area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Remember... ditches are deadly. A gentle flow of water can become a
raging torrent in a matter of minutes.

The heavy rainfall and slow movement of these storms may result in
flooding of Road intersections and low-lying
areas. Waters may begin to run in normally dry arroyos.

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

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* a portion of north and central nm... including the following
areas... Central Highlands... Chuska Mountains... Curry County... De
Baca County... east slopes Sangre de Cristo Mountains... eastern
San Miguel County... Estancia valley... far northeast Highlands...
far northwest Highlands... Guadalupe County... Harding County...
Jemez Mountains... lower Chama River Valley... lower Rio Grande
Valley... middle Rio Grande Valley/Albuquerque Metro area...
northeast Highlands... northern Sangre de Cristos above 9500
feet/Red River... northwest Highlands... northwest plateau... Quay
County... Raton ridge/Johnson Mesa... Roosevelt County... San
Francisco River Valley... San Juan Mountains... Sandia/Manzano
Mountains... Santa Fe Metro area... south Central Highlands...
south central mountains... southern Sangre de Cristos above 9500
feet... Southwest Mountains... Union County... upper Rio Grande
Valley... upper Tularosa Valley... west Central Highlands... west
central mountains... west Central Plateau and west slopes Sangre
de Cristo Mountains.

* Through late tonight

* a very moist air mass remains in place over much of New
Mexico... and many areas have already observed moderate to
locally heavy rainfall since Wednesday. This will escalate the
threat for flash flooding through tonight as repeated bursts of
shower and thunderstorm activity redevelop with the potential
for additional periods of heavy rainfall. Rainfall rates will
commonly approach 1 to 3 inches per hour with some heavier
downpours possible in localized areas.

* Flash flooding will be most susceptible around steep terrain and
recently burned forests... as well as urban drainages... and areas
that recently experienced heavy rainfall. Some minor flooding is
also possible on tributaries leading to main Stem rivers over
northern and eastern New Mexico.

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.
