114 PM MDT Thu Jul 27 2017

The National Weather Service in Albuquerque has issued a

* Arroyo and small stream flood advisory for...
southern Rio Arriba County in north central New Mexico...
northeastern Sandoval County in north central New Mexico...

* until 315 PM MDT.

* At 110 PM MDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to multiple
slow moving thunderstorms. This will cause Arroyo and small stream
flooding in the advisory area. Rivers impacted include the West
Fork of the jemez river, San Antonio creek, Rio Cebolla and Rio
Guadalupe, as well as many of their tributaries. The potential
exists for flash flooding to develop.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Jemez Springs, Fenton Lake State Park and Jemez State Monument.

This will impact the Thompson Ridge burn scar including but not
limited to Sulphur Creek Road, Sulphur Springs,
Freelove Canyon, Mormon Canyon, Deer Canyon, Valles Caldera preserve
Headquarters, Redondo creek, and Redondo Peak area.

This will also impact the cajete burn scar, including Highway 4.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Turn around, don't drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood
deaths occur in vehicles.

Both localized and distant heavy rainfall will create dangerous flows
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.

... 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.
