Areal Flood Advisory, Flash Flood Watch
Issued: 3:17 PM MDT Jul. 27, 2017 – National Weather Service

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

* Arroyo and small stream flood advisory for...
northwestern San Miguel County in northeastern New Mexico...

* until 615 PM MDT.

* At 316 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to
thunderstorms. This will cause Arroyo and small stream flooding in

in arroyos and over low water crossings. Do not attempt to drive
through these waters. Water in arroyos may travel many miles and take
hours to reach your location from upstream rain areas.

1145 am MDT Thu Jul 27 2017

... 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, De Baca County, east slopes
Sangre de Cristo Mountains, eastern Lincoln County, eastern San
Miguel County, Estancia valley, far northeast 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,
Quay County, Raton ridge/Johnson Mesa, San Francisco River
Valley, 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 atmosphere will slowly destabilize this afternoon,
leading to scattered to numerous slow-moving thunderstorms across
much of northern and western New Mexico. Storms may also repeatedly
move over the same area, leading to prolonged heavy downpours.

* Heavy downpours will lead to ponding of water in low lying areas
and abrupt and excessive water runoff near steeper terrain. As
soils become saturated from prolonged downpours, flash flooding
will be a threat. Normally dry creeks, arroyos, low water
crossings, and river beds could turn to raging torrents during
flash flooding episodes.

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.
