Flash Flood Watch
Statement as of 10:33 AM MDT on July 06, 2015

... Flash Flood Watch in effect from 2 PM MDT this afternoon through
late tonight...

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include a portion of north and central nm...
including the following areas... Estancia valley... Jemez
Mountains... lower Chama River Valley... lower Rio Grande Valley...
middle Rio Grande Valley/Albuquerque Metro area... northwest
Highlands... San Juan Mountains... Sandia/Manzano Mountains...
Santa Fe Metro area... south Central Highlands... south central
mountains... Southwest Mountains... upper Rio Grande Valley... west
Central Highlands and west central mountains.

* From 2 PM MDT this afternoon through late tonight

* a back door cold front moving into the area will provide focus
for numerous showers and thunderstorms this afternoon through
the overnight. Due to a very moist and unstable atmosphere in
place... any storm will be capable of very heavy rain. Slow
moving or training storms will exacerbate the flash flooding
threat. One to two inches of rain is likely... with locally
higher amounts possible.

* Burn scar areas and very steep terrain... locations that have
received recent heavy rainfall... and urban drainages will be the
most susceptible to flash flooding if heavy rainfall develops.

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.
