Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 2:24 PM MDT on July 30, 2015

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

* Arroyo and Small Stream Flood Advisory for...
east central Socorro County in central New Mexico...
north central Lincoln County in central New Mexico...
southwestern Torrance County in central New Mexico...

* until 415 PM MDT

* at 219 PM MDT... National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated
heavy rain due to slow moving thunderstorms. Radar estimated
between 1 and 2 inches of rain has fallen in parts of the advisory
area from the scattered thunderstorms slowly moving to the north
northwest. The potential training of these thunderstorms could
result in an additional 1 to 2 inches of rainfall. These will
result in areas of standing water on roads and in ditches... Muddy
and potentially impassable dirt back roads... and increased flows
in the few river beds in the area. County Road 55 and 42 as well
as parts of US Highway 54 may have standing water... so use caution
driving on these roadways.

* Locations impacted include...
Carrizozo... Corona... Willard... Claunch... White Oaks... Gran
Quivira... Cedarvale... Jicarilla and Ancho.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Heavy rainfall may result in flooding of Road intersections and low
lying areas. Waters may begin to run in normally
dry arroyos and spill over the banks of small streams and creeks.

... 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.
