Rio Grande then by Wednesday morning the threat for flash
flooding will spread to include all of far West Texas and
southern New Mexico. The threat for heavy rains may lesson by

Friday as the actual remnants of Odile move across the area.

* Normally dry arroyos and streams could be quickly filled with
fast moving water... mud and debris. Low water crossing roadways
could become impassable. People living in flood prone areas
should be prepared to take action if rising water is seen.
