Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 3:14 PM MDT on May 03, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from Monday afternoon through Tuesday
afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

* Flash Flood Watch for a portion of north and central New
Mexico... including the following areas... Chaves County
plains... Curry County... De Baca County and Roosevelt County.

* From Monday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon

* an upper level low pressure system will approach slowly from
over Southern California and Arizona on Monday and pass over New
Mexico on Tuesday. At the same time... moisture from the Gulf of
Mexico will move north and west into the eastern plains of New
Mexico... setting the stage for thunderstorms. The atmosphere
will destabilize early Monday and continue to be unstable
through late Tuesday... with multiple rounds of thunderstorms
expected. The main focus area will be over portions of the east
central and southeast plains... south of Interstate 40... where
rainfall amounts around two inches will be common. Spotty storm
total amounts may reach up to near four inches between Monday
afternoon and Tuesday afternoon.

* Locations most vulnerable to flash flooding will include poor
drainage areas... areas around The Caprock Escarpment and the
cities of Roswell... Fort Sumner... Portales and Clovis.

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.
